Presenter: Theresa A. Scott, M.S., Biostatistician, Department of Biostatistics
In this 1-day course, we will introduce R, the free interactive programming language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. We will emphasize the fundamentals and functionality of the language, not statistical concepts and techniques. During this 1-day "overview", we will cover some of the fundamentals, but will also get right into the functionality - we will read in a data set, make modifications to it, summarize it with descriptive statistics, and generate various graphical depictions of it. The goal is that you will be very comfortable interacting with R and will have enough knowledge to start using and learning R on your own.
This course is intended for anyone interested in learning the basics of R - both brand new and current users. No prior experience is necessary, but basic programming knowledge is helpful. Attendees should bring a laptop.
The workshop is currently full. To be added to a waiting list, please send an email to email@example.com.
