1-day R workshop for experienced users

University College Cork

R is a programming language and free software environment for data analysis and exploration. R functionality extends far beyond statistical analyses and when combined with the RStudio GUI, R can be deployed as a powerful tool to enact research reproducibility. R-projects facilitate research organisation while the steps and actions taken are documented in the script files. The dual aim of this 1-day workshop is to (A) demonstrate a reproducible data analysis workflow through an example RStudio project and (B) highlight how the reorganisation of popular R packages, under the umbrella banner of the “tidyverse”, has made working with R more intuitive and accessible to a wider audience.
