R is a powerful open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and data visualisation. It is the language of choice for most statisticians and provides an incredibly powerful and stable environment for conducting robust statistical research. The R community is vast and support is available from many sources.
The RStudio Integrated Development Environment (IDE) makes the entire data science workflow smooth and intuitive with its excellent features and panel layout. This meet-up aims to introduce people to the R language by covering best practices, basic data types, functions and data visualisation (both static and interactive) using ggplot2 and other excellent plotting libraries.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own laptop with both R and RStudio installed. Packages can be installed on the day as it will be shown how to do this.
