How to Work with List Columns

August 11, 2018

This webinar breaks down one of the most esoteric concepts in the Tidyverse: list columns. The Tidyverse is based on tidy data, which is based on tables. Tables simplify data analysis by making data easy to use, just like Arabic numerals simplify math by making numbers easy to use. But you may not know that tables can make other things easy to use as well. You can use tables to store models, lists, and other tables in a list column. The table will store the products of your data analysis in an organized way, and you can manipulate the table with your familiar Tidyverse tools. In this webinar, we will look at how you can make list columns and use them in your own work.
