In this session, we will work on a data visualization makeover exercise. We will start with a plot that would benefit from a thorough makeover and update it, step-by-step, using the ggplot2 package in R as well as a few other packages that play nicely with ggplot2. Along the way, we will discuss how each version of the plot improves on the previous one and why it can benefit from further improvement. The session will feature live coding and audience participation. Coding-along is encouraged, however those who would just like to watch and/or contribute ideas in the chat for improvements are equally welcome! Basic familiarity with R and ggplot2 will be helpful, however the only requirement for participation is a browser and a stable internet connection.
