I/O Psych Coding Community

Ashleigh Wilson and Abhinaya Rangarajan developed a Discord R learning community called IO Psych Coders! Their goal is to create a space for IO (or related field) students, professionals, and academics that use or are interested in learning R. The community offers a space to share learning resources, have IO and People Analytics related discussions, share career advice, network and meet new people with shared interests, work on projects with fellow members to build portfolios, live-coding/tutorial sessions, and more. And the best thing about the community… it’s completely free =) Follow the link below to join the server, and please share with your friends and IO programs!
