Description

About the Workshop Series

In the first part of this workshop series we will teach the general principles for reproducible computer-based analyses, along with specific methods and tools for reproducibility with R.

You will:

• learn how to construct reproducible, automatable computer workflows for data analysis,
• learn to make document production a part of your reproducible workflow,
• be introduced to Github – an online platform for personal and group projects

The remainder part of the workshop will help you use R as a programming environment, allowing you to write more complex, yet clearer data analysis code. We will cover two fundamental concepts of R programming: functions and packages.

Functions encapsulate a sequence of computations. You will learn:

• the syntax of R functions
• how functions can be reused and composed with your analytic workflows
• guidelines for writing clear and reliable code

Packages are R’s main method for creating and sharing bundles of related functions, classes, datasets, and help pages. You will learn:

• the structure of a package,
• how R manages libraries of installed packages,
• how they are used to share both code and analyses

Workshop 1: Monday, March 19th, 12:00 - 2:00pm
Workshop 2: Wednesday, March 21st, 2:00 - 4:00 pm
Workshop 3: Friday, March 23rd, 2:00 - 4:00 pm
