DROP IN TO THIS 3-HOUR INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP AND GET STARTED WITH R!

WHAT IS R?

R is both a software solution and a programming language. It is a widely used and very diverse data analysis tool and can be used for statistics, text mining and machine learning.

WHY R?

Compared to other, more specialized software solutions, R can be adapted and used for many purposes and types of analysis. Cutting-edge methods make their way to R before most other analysis software because it is open source.

R (like python) allows one to be more creative and experimental in ideas. That is why competencies in software like R is in increasing demand - and it's free!

THIS WORKSHOP WILL COVER:

  • Working with the R language and RStudio
  • Creating variables and objects
  • Importing and exporting data - also from other software like Excel and STATA
  • Creating simple visualizations

After finising this introduction, you can request additional CALDISS workshops to expand your data science competencies.
