Event description
Learn about the fundamental concepts in programming using R and apply them to analyse a sample research dataset.

About this Event

R is quickly gaining popularity as a programming language of choice for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem including the powerful RStudio development environment and the Shiny web application framework.

But getting started with R can be challenging, particularly if you've never programmed before. That's where this introductory course comes in.

Join us for a live online coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation.

You’ll learn:

  • Basic syntax and data types in R
  • How to load external data into R
  • Creating functions (FUNCTIONS)
  • Repeating actions and analysing multiple data sets (LOOPS)
  • Making choices (IF STATEMENTS - CONDITIONALS)
  • Ways to visualise data

Prerequisites

No prior experience with programming needed to attend this course.
