Learn to Program: R

Wed, 19/05/2021 - 13:30 to Thu, 20/05/2021 - 12:30

Learn about the fundamental concepts in programming using R and apply them to analyse a sample research dataset. In this live coding workshop we will write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).

This course will run over 2 days: Wed 19 May 1.30 - 4.30pm and Thurs 20 May 9.30am - 12.30pm.

You will learn: 

  • Basic syntax and data types in R
  • How to load external data into R
  • Creating functions (FUNCTIONS)
  • Repeating actions and analysing multiple data sets (LOOPS)
  • Making choices (IF STATEMENTS - CONDITIONALS)
  • Ways to visualise data
