While most R programmers have heard of ggplot2 and dplyr, many are unfamiliar with the breadth of the tidyverse and the variety of problems it can solve. In this video, Emily Robinson, a data scientist at DataCamp, will give a brief introduction to the concept of the tidyverse and then walk through an exploratory analysis of the 2017 Kaggle Data Science and Machine Learning Survey. You’ll see how functions like purrr’s map_if, forcat’s fct_reorder, dplyr’s select_if, and tidyr’s separate_rows all work together to create some great plots and interesting insights!
Whether you’ve been an R programmer for years but never used the tidyverse or are just starting on your R journey, you’ll probably find some new tricks. If you want to learn more, check out our Tidyverse Fundamental track.
