R, Matey...

R. It's a beast. For this week, I learned that a R related program exists, R Studio. It's the same program with a more user-friendly interface.

After loading in my CSV file (my NYC Open Data set from one of the first exercises we did this semester), I looked up a couple tutorials online on the various methods that can be used. 

Helen and I met to brainstorm final ideas and we've come up with some cool ideas oriented around my thesis project which focuses on voter turnout. There is a lot of existing data on the topic and we would like to use Tableau for it, since it is related to Helen's thesis project.
