Event Name Programming and tidy analysis in R
Start Date 30th Jul 2019 10:00am

Duration 7 hours
Description

This is an intermediate R workshop, for people wishing to increase their fluency in R. It covers tasks that while not specifically involved in statistical analysis are necessary when working with data: loading data and getting it into a form that is easy to work with, automating repetitive tasks, identifying problems such as the need for normalization and transformation, and properly understanding the story the data wants to tell.

In the first half of the workshop, attendees will learn elements of programming such as writing functions and loops that automate common
repetitive tasks, automating the running of software external to R, and using R code as a complete record of data analysis steps that is reproducible and can be shared with others.

In the second half of the workshop, attendees will learn intermediate level techniques for "tidy" data exploration and analysis, such as joining tables and getting data into "tidy" format. Once data is in the tidy format, many complex manipulations become easier. This is explored using a real data set, examining the iterative process of tidying, normalization and transformation, and exploration and visualization.

Location: Matheson Library T2, 40 Exhibition Walk Clayton.
