Workshop description: R is a powerful, free, open-source, and widely used tool for working with data that can allow you to streamline your analysis process, increase reproducibility, catch and avoid mistakes, and access newly developed analyses and statistical approaches.
This workshop will provide participants with the tools for reading in, manipulating, analyzing, and visualizing data in R. We will also cover skills that support computational programming, such as best practices for data organization and cleaning, and an introduction to databases with SQL.
A primary goal is to help participants become comfortable working in a coding environment. To accomplish this, the workshop format will include a combination of explanation, demonstration, and extensive hands-on practice using a variety of sample datasets. Participants will leave with basic skills that can be put into use immediately, as well as a platform from which to learn more complex analyses.
