R (www.r-project.org) is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. First, this workshop introduces basic concepts, syntax, and usage in R programming, statistical analysis, and visualization techniques. We will conduct hands-on tutorials throughout the session, giving attendees a chance to see R in action. This course is a pre-requisite for several other Collaboratory workshops.
This workshop is geared towards researchers who have little or no experience with R who want to get started with importing data into R and visualize it. This workshop will provide resources for data wrangling, visualization and cover principles and best-practices for robust and reproducible data visualization. If you are interested in any particular R/Data Visualization tool, please contact the instructor in advance and effort will be made to cover topics of community interest.
