R110: R for Research

Course duration: half day

Introduction to Project Management with RStudio, as well as DataFrames and Plotting in R.

About this course

R is quickly gaining popularity as a programming language of choice for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem including the powerful RStudio development environment and the Shiny web application framework.

This workshop is an introduction to data structures (DataFrames) and visualisation (using the ggplot2 package) in R. The targeted audience for this workshop is researchers who are already familiar with the basic concepts in programming such as loops, functions, and conditionals.

We teach using RStudio, which allows program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly.

Join us for a live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation.
