I came up with a weekly R challenge as a way to “force” myself into learning new things. One figure, every week! The catch is that every time I should be trying something new… maybe I’ll use a new type of visualization, or maybe I’ll explore a new dataset. Initially I thought it would be neat if there was some unifying topic, e.g. water, but, then I decided to keep it open.
Weekly R challenge, Entry #1
I really wanted to make it snow, if not here in Singapore, at least in R Studio! I also wanted to make a .gif in R. Couple of my students this semester were using .gifs for their aRt-science assignment, so now that I have a bit of time, I decided to try it out. Oh, and maybe this will also be the beginning of a new tradition: R greeting cards! Probably not 😀
Anyways, I wish you all Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
