07/29/2013 Update:

Thank you for the enthusiasm for this workshop.

In order to give every attendant the best learning experience and have enough teaching assistance to cover the class, we can only offer 40 spots at this moment. I am sorry if you are on the waiting list now. I will repeat it as much as I can in Aug/Sept/Oct. Hope to see you soon.

-------------------------------------------

Vivian Zhang will introduce how to load, clean nyc open data and do basic visualization by R.

Before you come, it will be nice to consider
1. to install Rstudio before you come. You can download Rstudio from http://www.rstudio.com/ide/
2. to get youself a free github account, so you can get some R sources right away. sign up at http://www.github.com/

Agenda:
7:00-8:00 Vivian will explain what R is, what R can do, how R compare to other tools you might already know and use. And She will explain some R codes.
8:00-9:00 individual hack time, you can make sure all the R codes run on your own PC before you go.

We need a lot of volunteers to walk around and help others to debug their codes. If you know R and willing to help others out, please drop me a msg. Thank you very much!
