Software Carpentry - Introduction to Programming in R (Melbourne Campus)
Tuesday, 8 August 2017 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm (AEST)
A DIGITAL RESEARCH INITIATIVE - A collaboration between the Office of the DVC(R), ICT and the Library, La Trobe’s Digital Research Strategy aims to provide a world-class digital research environment to enable and accelerate new research outcomes through the engagement of researchers with advanced and emerging information and computing technologies and appropriate support services.This workshop is presented by our partners, Intersect Australia Limited.
ABOUT THE SESSION:
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. 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 coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).
