Introduction to Reproducible Data Science with R

8/14/19, 8:30 AM

About this event

The open source data-analysis tool known as R is quickly becoming a leading programming language across the globe. Join IRSA for a short, 1.5-day course aimed at beginners who want to learn about its basic functions. 


Day one will explore the basic features of R and best practices for reproducible data science using R Markdown. We will also explore the power of R for constructing visualizations, wrangling data, and producing simple numerical summaries. The modules on day two will provide a gentle introduction to statistical modeling including linear regression and logistic regression. 

Topics covered:

  • Basic features of R and best practices for reproducible data science using R Markdown.
  • Uses of R for constructing visualizations, wrangling data, and producing simple numerical summaries.
  • A gentle introduction to statistical modeling including linear regression and logistic regression.

Testimonials from past participants:

"This would be a great workshop for graduate students as it could set them on the road to good work habits from the beginning."

"It was great to just have the hands on experience and know that you didn't need any R experience at all. I also really liked the datasets we worked with. ... I feel like I have a good starting foundation now to begin using R for a project!"
