Data Carpentry workshops are for any researcher who has data they want to analyze, and no prior computational experience is required. This hands-on workshop teaches basic concepts, skills and tools for working more effectively with data. We will cover data organization in spreadsheets and learn how to use the R programming language for data wrangling and visualization.
The course takes place in CSC's Dogmi classroom, which has a computer for every participant. For further information on the course contents and links to individual lessons, please visit the course GitHub page.
In this workshop, participants will learn:
- Good data entry practices (data in spreadsheets)
- How to navigate RStudio
- R syntax and how to write R code
- Importing and exporting data to / from R
- How to use tidyverse for data wrangling and plotting
- Using R together with SQL databases
This introductory course is aimed at graduate students and other researchers. You don't need to have any previous knowledge of the tools that will be presented at the workshop.
