Workshop Data handling in R (Fully booked)

Handling raw towards consistent data is a crucial step in your research. This should be done thoroughly and transparently. For this purpose, R is a very useful software tool. This workshop covers the basics of raw data handling in R.

Topics we cover are:

  • Steps in preparing your data for analyses
  • How to perform these steps in R
  • Ultra-quick tour of Rstudio
  • Good coding practices

The workshop offers a concise hands on introduction to raw data handling in R, with ready-made examples. At the end you have a good idea on the theory of transforming, checking, cleaning, and rearranging your data. You will have a basis for a further understanding of coding in R, how to document your code, and you will have a working script for an example.

The workshop can be complemented by attending the R Data Handling Café (bring your own data and code, or use our self-study assignments) 4th of September. 

For whom

Employees of the Utrecht University who are planning, or just started coding in the R programming language for their data handling.
