Intro to R/Tidyverse

To the Tidyverse, and Beyond…

A gentle introduction to R and the Tidyverse using RStudio. This two-hour, hands-on session introduces data wrangling, data types, variable assignments, and packages. Our focus will be the Tidyverse, specifically the dplyr and ggvis packages. Tidyverse, is an approachable set of consistent data science tools enabling the R statistical programming language.

For visualization we introduce ggvis. Beyond ggvis, we may also introduce ggplot2 and sf (mapping/GIS) as time allows. Both ggplot2 and sf packages are complex enough that we offer separate workshops for each topic.

Attendees will be signed-up for up to six months of free academic access to the interactive training at DataCamp.

Typically, this workshop is offered once a month. The best way to find out about future workshops is by subscribing to Rfun workshop annoucement list or browsing our broader listing of DVS workshops.
