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.
Prior to the workshop, participants should install R first, followed by the free version of RStudio Desktop. Registrants will be emailed installation instructions. If you need help installing these, please schedule a coding consultation and we'd be glad to help you.
This workshop is part of the Data Analysis with R and Tableau series for those looking to deepen their understanding of how to interact with data and more effectively and creatively communicate their research findings to wide audience. If you need personalized assistance with a data analysis, programming, or a coding project, consider booking a consultation with one of our librarian-experts. Learn more about our services to support programming and coding and for working with data.
