DataFest Workshop Series - Intro to R: Data Transformations, Data Structures, and the Tidyverse

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.

NOTE:  Bring your laptop.  The Edge Workshop Room does not provide computers.

  1. You can use a cloud version of R or install R & RStudio in advance (instructions)
  2. Install the tidyverse package in advance (instructions)

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