Scientific Computing with R

Thursday, November 2, 2023 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m.

The goal of this lesson is to teach new programmers to write modular code to perform a data analysis. R is used to teach these skills because it is a commonly used programming language in many scientific disciplines. However, the emphasis is not on teaching every aspect of R, but instead on language agnostic principles like automation with loops and encapsulation with functions.

A lab environment will be provided for you, but if you wish to follow along on your own device, please have the following installed on your computer prior to the start of the workshop:

  • R Software (for workshop lab materials)
  • RStudio Desktop (for demo at end of workshop)

This workshop is aimed at graduate students and other researchers, but all are welcome to attend. This is a basics level workshop for an audience who intend to start working with R language in the future. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be taught.
