R for Data Science – Exploring the Tidyverse

After work Seminar


LEVEL: Introduction

R is a programming language and free software environment used by companies such as Google, Microsoft, and New York Times. The Tidyverse is a collection of R packages for Data Science, based on a common ground of data and R programming. These packages can be used to: import, tidy, transform, visualize, model, and communicate, data.

The Tidyverse is immensely popular among Data Science practitioners using R. Thanks to the book ”R for Data Science”, by Hadley Wickham and Garrett Grolemund, it is easy for programmers to dive into the Tidyverse. The main purposes of this seminar are to show some of the key features of the Tidyverse and inspire people to learn more about it. We will go through key features of libraries such as ggplot2 (visualization), dplyr (manipulation), and readr (import), using data from the Swedish ski race Vasaloppet. 

Bring your laptops if you want to try coding yourselves. In that case, make sure to install R and Rstudio, and then run install.packages(”tidyverse”) inside RStudio, before the seminar.


Speaker: Olof Rännbäck Garpinger

Olof has a PhD in Automatic Control from Lund University, and has worked as a consultant since 2009. He has long experience in data analysis using both R and Matlab, and is an avid fan of the Tidyverse.
