Fall 2018 Rfun Workshops

Posted 13 Aug 2018

The Rfun series welcomes you back to the Duke University campus and we invite you to join us for an informative semester of workshops about R using RStudio and the Tidyverse. These workshops will provide you with a gentle hands-on introduction to a most powerful data science toolkit. Attend one or attend them all.

The cost is free and registration is for in-person attendance only. Fortunately the resources are shareable. You can find links to previous workshop resources (code, video, github) on this very website: https://rfun.library.duke.edu

Workshop Arrangement

This workshop series is intended to be iterative and recursive. We recommend starting with the Introduction to R. Proceed through the remaining workshops as you are interested. Be aware each workshop may rely on or develop concepts presented earlier.

Recordings and Past Workshops

We presented a similar version of this workshop series last spring and recorded those sessions whenever possible. Past workshop resource links are shareable and presented in a listicle format: Rfun recap.

Rfun is a DVS learning series
