This hands-on workshop will teach you basic research computing skills and cover basic concepts and tools, including program design, version control, data management, and task automation. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems.
The workshop covers data analysis and visualisation in R, focusing on working with tabular data and other core data structures, using conditionals and loops, writing custom functions, and creating publication-quality graphics.
As a more introductory R offering, this workshop also introduces learners to RStudio and strategies for getting help.
Participants must have access to a computer with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed.
