Center for Data and Visualization Sciences (CDVS) Workshop Series

A gentle introduction to R and the Tidyverse. This suite of data savvy tools and techniques enable flexible reporting via literate programing as a means to achieve reproducible and transparent analysis. The workshop begins with a measured and deliberate orientation to the RStudio interface. Participants will import data (readr). We continue with a step-by-step approach to transform and wrangle data (dplyr). Finally, we introduce basic exploratory data analysis (EDA.) Participants can expect explanation, demonstration and code examples along with hands-on learning.
