Introduction to R
This workshop is directed towards participants who have little or no experience with statistical computing or programming. R is an open source language that can be used for a variety of computational purposes. This class will introduce R and RStudio in the context of its data analysis capabilities. Via interactive code-alongs, students will learn the basics of creating variables, using functions, accessing documentation, loading packages, importing data, and investigating a dataset. This session will be taught via Zoom: a link to the Zoom session will be sent in the confirmation and reminder emails.
Prerequisites: No experience required, but this workshop requires both R and RStudio installed on your computer. Prior to the workshop please set aside around one hour to follow the set-up instructions posted to the Workshops website (http://guides.hsl.virginia.edu/data/workshops#s-lg-box-24732275). Feel free to reach out to the instructors for assistance if needed.
