About the Workshop Series

Brand new workshops in collaboration with Experiential Data science for Undergraduate Cross-disciplinary Education (EDUCE) at the U. of British Columbia.

This is a 3 part workshop series. Your registration covers the 3 sessions, totally 6 hours of instruction. Please note the non-traditional days of M/Th/F

  • Workshop 1: Monday, July 16, 2:00 - 4:00pm

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


Pre-requisites

No prior experience required though a working knowledge of Linux command line and basic R is beneficial.
