We will cover the following tasks in 34 minutes:

### Select

The Select function is your friend. You will learn how to quickly slice your data frames to create new ones using this function.

### Filter

It’s time to dice. Do you want to quickly know which rows meet a certain criteria? This is your function. Join me and we will go over it.

### Piping Operator

This is not plumbing. Nope. The pipe is the glue that keeps the dplyr verbs together. Use this for neat and efficient code.

### Arrange

Oh you want to arrange your data in descending order. Look no further than arrange. I will walk you through this bad boy.

### Summarise

This is my favorite. Think pivot table in Excel on Steroids. I’ll walk you through its magic. By the way, this lesson is a two’fer since I throw in group_by as well. Join me and I’ll show you all about this wicked great verb combo.

### Mutate

Last but not least, mutate will help you create new variables – and much quicker than base R ways.

### Introduction

In this section we will discuss the dplyr cheat sheet on RStudio’s website. We will talk about course objectives. We will then go over the Virtual Machine and I will tell you a little about myself.

I am a R enthusiast, hiker, and amateur astronomer. My favorite hike is located in Mt. Rainier National Park, my favorite Deep Sky Object is Alberio, and my favorite R package is dplyr (since I use it everyday). I am single too. Maybe because I spend too much time playing? I have a dog named Coog (Lllasa Apso), who would rather be outside than inside, which means I have to take him on a lot of walks. I work as a Data Analyst/Financial Analyst for a Metals Co. located in Seattle, WA. I have been in my current position for 4 years. My hope is that I can help you, even if its with my enthusiasm. Yes you can learn R and the Rhyme Interface will help you. But. You also must take what you learn and practice, practice, practice. So... Let's get after it. See you soon.

##### How is this different from courses in YouTube, PluralSight, Udemy, etc.?
In Rhyme, all sessions are completely hands-on. You don't just passively watch someone else use the software. You use the software directly. While following the host's (Chris Shockley) instructions. Using the software is the only way to understand a software!
##### What do I need to install / configure to join this session?
Nothing! Your host (Chris Shockley) has already installed all required software and configured all data in a virtual machine. You just join the session from a web-browser and start using the software immediately!
##### Is this session really FREE?
Absolutely! We are strong believers in "Information wants to be free."
##### I have a different question
