This workshop will introduce students to the basics of plotting in R using the commonly used ggplot2 package. We will learn the ggplot2 syntax, its basic building blocks and adding layers of data. By the end of the workshop, you will be able to plot simple graphs and have control over the axes, colours and facets. I will share some common issues I encountered during my experience with ggplot2, and, most importantly, I will show you how to use resources available online e.g. R cheatsheets, GitHub repos, Stack Overflow, and more, which will be essential for further learning.
