IACS ComputeFest Workshop:
Introduction to R

Wednesday, January 11, 2017
3:00 PM - 5:30 PM

R has become the go-to language for statistics and is increasingly popular among data scientists. This workshop will gently guide you toward R mastery using real-world examples and hands-on exercises. Specifically, you will learn how to install and manage packages, navigate the help system, import and manipulate data, conduct simple statistical analyses, and construct simple graphics in R.

No previous R experience is required.  

Prerequisites: You must have a laptop with R (https://cran.r-project.org/) and RStudio (https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/) installed.
