TDAI hosts (virtual) R programming workshops

TDAI is pleased to announce a multi-part workshop for learning about R.  R is a free and open source programming language used by many for statistical computing.  This series of workshops covers how to get started in R, use R in statistical analysis, and create visualizations in R.

With face-to-face instruction restricted across campus, we are planning on delivering these workshops online.

Getting Started in R – 2 sessions

3/26/2020, 1-3pm AND
4/2/2020, 1-3pm

Learn how to get started in R and Rstudio using a free Rstudio.cloud account.  This workshop covers basic R functionality:  objects, functions, vectors, and various data operations. Registering for this workshop signs you up for both sessions, as the sessions build upon each other.
