This Wednesday we talked about how to wrie functions in R. The topic is very simple but useful. Thank you to everyone who showed up!
See you next Wednesday 11/16/2016 10:00-12:00 at DSSC!
Also, we will host a R workshop about regresssion next Friday 11/19/2016 10:00-11:00 at Science & Engineering LIbrary!
Lehman Library will be open tomorrow, November 8th, 2016, from 9am-5pm for election day. We will resume normal hours Wednesday, November 9th. Other libraries will also have shortened hours which you can check here.
The latest session of Map Club focused on OpenLayers, a high-performance library for rendering geographic information in the browser. OpenLayers enables users to visualize a diverse range of geospatial data formats, while offering intuitive links to external web-based mapping resources such as CARTO, OpenStreetMap, Stamen, and D3.js.

Next week will be the second guided workshop of the semester. We will be digging into QGIS, a free and open source geographic information system that offers powerful tools for data editing, viewing, and analysis. Hope to see you there!

A quick note about the course material:
- If you want to get set up with Python 2.7 installation on your system, check out the Session-1 slides.
- Practise! Practise! Practise!
Hope to see you next Friday, 11:00 AM at DSSC 🙂
This Wednesday we talked about time series analysis. It is a very complex and involved topic, but most participants showed great interest, so we would continue talking about this for the next few sessions.
Thank you to everyone who showed up! See you next Wednesday 11/02/2016 10:00-12:00 at DSSC!

See you next week !
Today we introduced merge(), factor() and some basic techniques for handling missing values during the first 30 minutes of the open lab. For the rest of the open lab, there were free discussions about personal projects the participants are working on.
We also introduced package swirl. Swirl package teaches you R programming interactively.
Thank you to everyone who showed up! For next session, we would explore time series analysis and car package.
See you next Wednesday 10/26/2016 10:00-12:00! Welcome to drop by anytime in between!
