Group projects started after reading week. Teams have been formed.
We are aiming for lightning talk presentations by each team on May 2, 2019, from 2pm to 4:40pm in Room 138, Henry Administration Building.
More details will be forthcoming– but the general idea is to have five minutes per team along with five slides per team. Both limits are hard. Teams are expected to have presentation-ready slides in the RStudio Cloud environment (Markdown presentation). More details will be forthcoming.
The overall deadline for the group project will be Saturday, May 4, at 8pm.
