Announcing Tidyverse workshops for Winter 2018

Coming this winter the Data & Visualization Services Department will once again host a workshop series on the R programming language. Our spring offering is modeled on our well received R we having fun yet‽ (Rfun) fall workshop series. The four-part series will introduce R as a language for modern data manipulation by highlighting a set of tidyverse packages that enable functional data science. We will approach R using the free RStudio IDE, an intent to make reproducible literate code, and a bias towards the tidyverse. We believe this open tool-set provides a context that enables and reinforces reproducible workflows, analysis, and reporting.

Workshop Arrangement

This workshop series is intended to be iterative and recursive. We recommend starting with the Introduction to R. Proceed through the remaining three workshops in any order of interest.

Recordings and Past Workshops

We presented a similar version of this workshop series last fall and recorded each session whenever possible. You can stream past workshops and engage with the shareable data sets at your-own-pace (see the Past Workshop resources links, above.) Alternatively, all the past workshop resource links are presented in one listicle: Rfun recap.
