A Walk on the R Side: Introduction to R for Data Analysis

Workshop

R is a programming language that is popular for data exploration, visualization, and statistical analysis. This workshop will introduce participants to basic R tasks such as reading data into R, analyzing data, and plotting data.

No prior programming knowledge is required, just a basic understanding of computer files and folders. Please bring a laptop to this workshop. In advance of the workshop, please install R from r-project.org and the free version of RStudio Desktop from rstudio.com. If you need help installing these, please schedule a Coding Consultation (http://go.gwu.edu/coding) and we'd be glad to help you. 

This workshop is also offered to the GW community in real time on Friday, November 10, 2017 - 10:00am to 12:00pm.

This workshop is part of the Research Data Workshop Series for anyone who needs help collecting, managing, and visualizing research data. Other workshops in this Fall 2017 series are Data Demystified, Data Management, Getting Data with APIs, Collecting Social Media Data with Social Feed Manager, A Walk on the R Side: Introduction to R for Data Analysis, and Humanities in the Open: Using the Open Science Framework for Digital Humanities.
