Date Night (analysing dates with lubridate)

When:  Oct 29, 2020 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM (IDLW)

How do you go about learning to use a new package in R? Do you like to watch people code so always turn to Youtube first? Or do you look for tutorials that someone has posted on their blog? Maybe you are a R purist and head to the package documentation?

I have decided that I want to learn how to deal with dates in R and in scheduling this talk, I am publicly committing to my goal! I am starting now and hopefully by the talk date in October I will have worked it out. If not, I might end up presenting about the process of learning to use a new package in R than how to use `lubridate` per se.

At this stage, it is a bit unclear what this talk will be, but either way it will be fun!!
