Workshop Description:

Introduction to R is a 3-hour workshop introducing basic programming concepts in R and learning 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.  

No prior programming knowledge is necessary.  The workshop is hands-on and participants will follow along with all of the coding.  Participants will need to have R, then RStudio installed on their own computers.  R is the programming language itself and must be installed first (https://cran.r-project.org/). RStudio Desktop provides a more friendly programming environment and is used in conjunction with R (https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/).

The workshop will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Workshop participants will be e-mailed a Zoom link prior to the workshop, and the instructor can assist students to download R and RStudio during the first 15 minutes, if you have not already done so.
