IACS ComputeFest Workshop:
R Programming for Data Analysis

Thursday, January 12, 2017
12:00 PM - 2:30 PM

R is an excellent statistics platform, and a full programming language.  This workshop takes you beyond simple statistical analysis by introducing you to some of the more powerful programming techniques in R. Specifically, you will learn how to manipulate text using regular expressions, automate repetitive tasks, define your own functions and more.

Prerequisites: basic familiarity with R, such as acquired from an introductory R workshop.

Participants should bring a laptop with a recent version of R (http://cran.r-project.org/) and RStudio (http://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/) installed.
