Introduction to R & Data

This workshop is now full! If you want to be waitlisted, send an e-mail to s.a.dekker@uu.nl. More information about our next workshop will follow.

R is a powerful scripting language for data handling, data visualization, and statistics. In this workshop, we aim to give you the tools to start exploring R and all it has to offer by yourself.

The course will take you from the very basics in R syntax, to data handling and visualization using a set of tools known as the ‘tidyverse’. Not only that, we will take some time to understand datasets and their architecture, preparing you to handle your own data in a clean, robust, and reproducible manner. We will work in RStudio and introduce R as well as R Markdown: this is a great way to combine code and its output with text, allowing you to code in a narrative and intuitive way. Moreover, this way you produce a human-readable document with which you can easily share and showcase your work.

At the end of the course you will be able to:

  • read and write lines of R code (even if you do not understand all functions, you know how to look them up);
  • understand what ‘tidy’ data is, how to generate it, and work with it;
  • open, read, manipulate, save, and visualize a dataset, using tidyverse tools;
  • use RStudio, and use it to write an R script and an R markdown document.
