R for Data Science I: Intro to R and Data Visualization

Friday, October 27, 2017 - 9:00am to 4:00pm
Event Information: 

This is the first in a series of four R workshops. The purpose of this sequence of four workshops is to take students from no experience in R or data science to a level of proficiency in which they can (1) visualize, (2) manipulate, and (3) perform introductory statistical methods on a dataset. The sequence is divided into 4 full-day sessions, each with a morning and afternoon session that consists of lecture, pair programming, and review.

The biggest hurdle in getting to use R is simply to not be intimidated by the coding nature. This workshop introduces students to the basic structure of RStudio and code-based commands. It does so in the context of the important and rewarding tasks of visualizing data.
