Meet me at AOS 2018 in Tucson!

I’ve just got the announcement from the American Ornithologist Society panel that I’ll be leading TWO events at the conference in Tuscon.

  • Auriel Fournier and I will continue the tradition of teaching our R Workshop at AOS
    “Taking the Next Step with R: Data Management, Publication Quality Graphics and Function Building”

We’re taking notes from last year and changing the structure of the workshop a bit. This year we are continuing to teach the the Tidyverse section and Auriels every popular GGplot course. I am changing up the structure of my portion and focusing on function building with an emphasis on automation. I hope this will allow students get learn something new and at a pace that will hopefully stick with them.

The workshop is April 10th.

I’ll post the updates as I get them on the Course page.

  • I am leading the First meeting of the R oRnithologists!

With R’s ever increasing popularity there is a rise in biologists using it to make amazing products. However, these advancements are often not communicated and shared with others in the community. Therefore there is a need to get R programmers together to talk standards, methods, and show off cool things being built in R

As I focus heavily on user inteface with R, I will be presenting a couple of widgets I’ve built in Shiny and discuss the usefulness of using R in your lab.

Come join us April 13, 2018 to talk R.
