Center for Data and Visualization Sciences (CDVS) Workshop Series

R and the Tidyverse are a data-first coding language that enables reproducible workflows. In this two-part workshop, you'll learn the fundamentals of R, everything you need to know to quickly get started. Part 2 requires the familiarity of part 1. You'll learn about visualization using ggplot2, how to make interactive charts for use in dashboards, how to reshape and merge data, and be introduced to models. By the end of part 2 you will have a familiarity with the grammar of graphics, be introduced to interactivity techniques, be able to invoke data joins and pivots, and gain an introduction to linear regression.
