Managing projects with workflowr and Introduction to DiagrammeR


November 7, 2017

We’re back to our regular schedule after last month’s Hacktoberfest fun. Join us for talks on managing your projects with workflowr and a brief introduction to the visualisation tool, DiagrammeR.

Managing projects with workflow

In this session I’ll do a walk through of using package workflowr to organise and document projects including some best practice tips and tricks.

Anna Krystalli has a background in marine macroecology. Now she works as a Research Software Engineer at the University of Sheffield, helping researchers do more with their code and data.

Introduction to DiagrammeR

In this session I’ll give a brief introduction to DiagrammeR, a package for creating and visualising network graphs and diagrams, with built-in support for a range of formats. I’ll demonstrate how to create a data-driven network diagram using data on trade in endangered species.

Tamora James is a PhD researcher in the Department of Animal and Plant Sciences at the University of Sheffield. Her work involves modelling populations of vulnerable bird species to determine effective conservation interventions.

Sheffield R Users Group needs you

We rely on members of the Sheffield R community to speak at our meetups and try to offer a mix of “beginners” and “expert” level talks. If you’d like to share a 15 minute informal slide-talk on a topic of your choosing (broadly ‘something cool I’ve done related to R that others would benefit from hearing about’) then we’d love to hear from you!
