Introduction to R Workshop

Monday, June 19, 2017
9:00 am
The D.B. Weldon Library (WL)
Room: Library Instruction Room (ground floor)

This workshop is a half-day introduction to R, an open source statistical package for data analytics and graphics that is widely used in both academia and industry. It is freely available, well-supported, powerful and flexible, making it one of the most used of all programming languages.

Workshop participants will be introduced to basic programming concepts in R and learn to execute data manipulations, calculations, statistical analyses, and produce useful graphs and numeric summaries.  Participants will also learn to write simple functions that can be used to automate analyses and examine the use of R packages to expand R’s basic capabilities.  More information on this workshop can be found here:

No prior programming knowledge is necessary.  The workshop is hands-on and participants will follow along with all of the coding.  Participants are strongly encouraged to bring their own computers, but please ensure that both R and RStudio are installed. R is the programming language itself and must be installed first ( RStudio Desktop provides a more friendly programming environment and is used in conjunction with R (

The workshop will be led by PhD candidates in the Department of Statistical & Actuarial Sciences in the Weldon Instruction Room (ground floor, Map & Data Centre, Weldon Library).
