4.2 Your turn

You have 10 minutes for this activity.

  • Pick one person from your breakout room to go to the RStudio Cloud project titled 04 - Get creative and share their screen. Make the plot in the Rmd document titled ugly-ggplot2.Rmd as ugly as you can in the allotted time. This should be a group effort where the person sharing the screen is implementing changes others suggest. The others in the team should also be looking up ggplot2 documentation to help come up with the code that implements those changes.
  • When you see the Zoom message saying “time is almost up”, copy and paste the visualisation you came up with here.
