Introduction to R: the data science Tidyverse

Part of the Rfun learning series

A gentle introduction to R and the Tidyverse.  This suite of data savvy tools and techniques enable flexible reporting via literate programing as a means to achieve reproducible and transparent analysis.  

The workshop begins with a measured and deliberate orientation to the RStudio interface.  Participants will import data (readr).  We continue with a step-by-step approach to transform and wrangle data (dplyr).  Finally, we introduce basic exploratory data analysis (EDA.)  Participants can expect explanation, demonstration and code examples along with hands-on learning.

This workshop is part of the Rfun learning series: "R We Having Fun Yet‽". Learn more at https://rfun.library.duke.edu/
