Tidy Data in R

The process of generating data can be messy, and what you can do with your data depends strongly on how it is formatted. This month's coding and cookies will cover the definition of “tidy data”, a standardized way of formatting your data that makes it easier to work with. You will learn how to clean and reformat your data using a collection of R packages called the tidyverse. A basic working knowledge of R and R studio would be helpful for you to get the most out of this session.

Version Control using Git

We’ve all intuitively used some type of version control in our work such as saving multiple versions of a document. While easy, it can cause file bloat and ultimately become more complicated. Luckily, formal version control systems have been developed to streamline this process. In this month’s Coding and Cookies session, we will be covering version control using git. After this session, you’ll be able to create a git repository, make and add changes to the repository, and use GitHub to remotely store your repository.
