A Walk on the R Side: R for Data Analysis

This event has already taken place, please don't try to go to it!

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.

There will be a break from 11:30am-12:30pm.

In advance of the workshop, please install R first, followed by the free version of RStudio Desktop. If you need help installing these, please schedule a Coding Consultation through Academic Commons and we'll be glad to help you.
