Equal parts history and mystery, noted data sciolist, Mara Averick, will take you on a whirlwind tour through the lighter side of learning and communicating (data) science. From the 19th-century pages of Science Gossip to modern-day social media, you’ll find out how the nature of scientific communities has and hasn’t changed over the past 200 years, and discover how “learning out loud” can help you navigate an ever-increasing amount of information, or (at the very least) keep you entertained while so doing.
Mara Averick - Mara (better known as @dataandme) is our tidyverse developer advocate. She got into R by way of a long-time obsession with the NBA and (fantasy) basketball. When not catering to the every whim of her dogs, she can be found: hunting down weird words; indulging her bibliomania; and/or quantifying, visualizing, and watching Archer.
