Data and Visualization Workshop Series

In response to a growing focus on the importance of reproducibility, replication, and transparency in the research endeavor, scholars are adapting their practices and learning new skills and tools. DVS is offering a workshop series that will introduce the concepts, practices and tools that will help increase the reproducibility of your work.GitHub and GitLab are social coding platforms which enable collaboration. Built upon the Git (version control) framework these tools make social coding and code sharing more accessible. Learn how to create branches, create remote repositories, leverage the GitHub/GitLab interface for simpler "reverts", and collaborate with others. To fully participate in this workshop, please bring your own laptop. This workshop requires that you have already configured RStudio with Git, a topic covered on Sept. 25. Prerequisite: RStudio and Git. All attendees are expected to be familiar with the R Studio environment (See Intro to R).
