  2. LAB MANTRA 2 “YOU MUST TRY, AND THEN YOU MUST

    ASK” • Search independently for 15 minutes • Don’t dig too deep. Ask someone for help! https://blogs.akamai.com/2013/10/you-must-try-and-then-you-must-ask.html
  3. LAB MANTRA 3 “YOU MUST TRY, AND THEN YOU MUST

    ASK” • Search independently for 15 minutes • You have to be semi-independent • Resources: Google, Bioconductor Support, Bit-Help (JHPCE), Rstudio Community, Stack Overflow • Don’t dig too deep. Ask someone for help! • It’s easy to keep digging in a rabbit hole • YOU are part of the team, rely on them! Slack, Twitter, etc • Make it easy for others to help you • Reproducible examples (reprex), software versions, code on GitHub, commands used https://blogs.akamai.com/2013/10/you-must-try-and-then-you-must-ask.html
  4. ASKING FOR HELP 4 ASKING FOR HELP IS CHALLENGING •

    It’s scary • You show what you don’t know to others • Sadly, many have historically flamed down questions http://lcolladotor.github.io/2018/11/12/asking-for-help-is-challenging-but-is-typically-worth-it/
  5. ASKING FOR HELP 5 ASKING FOR HELP IS CHALLENGING… BUT

    IT’S TYPICALLY WORTH IT • You will be able to move on with your work • You might learn something in the process • If you try to make it easy for others to help you, then you might figure out the answer yourself in the process http://lcolladotor.github.io/2018/11/12/asking-for-help-is-challenging-but-is-typically-worth-it/

    LEARN FROM EACH OTHER Dynamic 1. Share the URL to a search you performed recently through this Google sheet before or during the lab meeting (Google Search, Bioconductor Support Website, Github, etc). You can do this anonymously if you prefer to do so. 2. At lab meeting, explain what you were looking to solve, whether the link(s) you found helped and what solution you used (or if you still need help) 3. Look over everyone else's links, if you have something to add value, share it too. Like an alternative solution, a blog post you like on the subject, a useful tweet, etc. You can do this anonymously if you prefer to do so. http://bit.ly/learnfromsearch
