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 (install this first) and the free version of RStudio Desktop from rstudio.com (install this second). If you need help installing these, please schedule a Coding Consultation (http://go.gwu.edu/coding) and we'd be glad to help you.
