R ecology workshop31 Jul 2013 R ecology ggplot2 reshape2 plyr
After my presentation yesterday to a group of grad students on R resources, I did a presentation today on intro to R data manipulation, visualizations, and analyses/visualizations of biparite networks and community level analyses (diversity, rarefaction, ordination, etc.). As I said yesterday I've been playing with two ways to make reproducible presentations in R: RStudio's presentations built in to RStudio IDE, and Slidify. Yesterday I went with RStudio's product - today I used Slidify. See the Markdown file for the presentation here.
How I actually ran the 2 hr workshop was to present a few slides, then live demo writing the code out with students following along, with a number of times where they do something on their own.
