Let's get started with R (beginner's workshop)

I have no details at this time, but this will be a discussion of topics at a level appropriate for those who are new to the R programming language.

    Hello Guys,

    There is the one document which I published in rpub.

    FYI I might not make it as my car is having trouble.

    I wrote up something about axis options in R. A first draft is at:

    but I might make a few minor tweaks.

    I took a quick look at SparkR and I'm thinking it might be better suited to an advanced topics meeting. What do you think?

      Yep. Probably so.

    Has anyone played with SparkR [1]? Might be an interesting future topic. It would be nice to standup a cluster with data we could all use to learn more about R and add a touch of additional relevance in the process.

    I have used R Studio and find it very handy to code and run R scripts. I would love to talk about it at the upcoming meeting. My talk will cover a brief overview of the IDE.

    I didn't get a chance to get much feedback at the June meeting, but here are some possible topics.

    First, I will present a talk on counts and percentages using the table function. This will include discussion of the table, addmargin, and prop.tables functions.

    Second, would someone be able to talk about R Studio?

    Third, we could do some additional graphics talks. If there is a specialized graph that you use a lot (like the qqplot function) or if you have some special enhancements to your graphs (like modifying the axes) that you could talk about, that would be great.

    [More to come in the next post]

      Fourth, there's a lot more about data management that we could cover. Merging files is one possibility, more on the use of apply and related functions might be another. Fifth, it might be nice to talk about some simple statistical models. I talked a bit about lm, the function for linear regression, at an earlier meeting but a talk on glm, with an emphasis on logistic regression might also be nice. If anyone has worked with splines or other data smoothers, that would be a great thing to share as well.

      We don't want all of these in a single meeting, of course. But let me know which of these you'd like to have covered. If you can talk about any of these or if you have your own pet topic, that would be great as well.

      Steve Simon,
