Basic R Programming for Data Analysis

Ista Zahn, Statistical Trainer

Jan/30 Mon 09:00AM-12:00PM 4-231, Bring your laptop

Enrollment: Limited: Advance sign-up required
Prereq: a basic familiarity with R

This hands-on, intermediate course will guide you through a variety of programming functions in the open-source statistical software program, R. 

It is intended for those already comfortable with using R for data analysis who wish to move on to writing their own functions. To the extent possible this workshop uses real-world examples. Concepts will be introduced as they are needed for a realistic analysis task. In the course of working through a realistic project we will lean about interacting with web services, regular expressions, iteration, functions, control flow and more.

Prerequisite: basic familiarity with R, such as acquired from an introductory R workshop.

Bring your own laptop. There are no computers in the classroom.
