Description

About the Workshop Series

In this series, we introduce computational reproducibility and its importance to modern research. We will teach the general principles for reproducible computer-based analyses, along with specific methods and tools for reproducibility and version control with RStudio and GitHub.

You will learn how to:

  • Construct reproducible, automatable workflows in R
  • Create reproducible documents using Rmarkdown to include underlying code / computations with relevant graphical and statistical results in several different formats (reports, presentation slides, handouts, notes)
  • Use Git version control
  • Integrate version control with GitHub for both personal and group projects

This is a 2 part workshop series. Your registration covers 2 sessions, totalling 6 hours of instruction.

  • Workshop 1: Monday, Oct 21, 1:00 - 4:00pm
  • Workshop 2: Wednesday, Oct 23, 1:00 - 4:00pm


Pre-requisites

No prior experience required though a working knowledge of Linux command line and basic R is beneficial. Please see our Introduction to R workshop. Bring your labtop, or borrow one at UBC Library Technology Borrowing
