The R computing environment has become one of the most important tools in quantitative research, from computational biology to financial modeling. This short workshop will expose participants to the basic elements of R through a hands-on analysis of the Divvy bike trip data. No previous programming experience is required. The aim is to provide participants with the basic tools to analyze data in R or RStudio, either on the RCC cluster, or on their own computer. Specific skills participants will learn include importing data from CSV files, summarizing and processing data in data frames, installing and using R packages, and plotting data using ggplot2.
This is an INTRODUCTORY level workshop, for users with little or no experience in the topic.
Prerequisites: All participants are expected to bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system that they have administrative privileges on. An RCC account is helpful, but not required.
