Turbo charge your data analysis

We're launching a series of five one-day courses to get you and your team familiar with R Programming. Either dive into all five days for the full learning experience or pick and choose between a selection of days, starting with “Intro to R”.

Location: CodeClan Edinburgh

Intro to R

This is a one-day intensive course on R and assumes no prior knowledge. By the end of the course, participants will be able to import, summarise and plot their data. At each step, we avoid using “magic code”, and stress the importance of understanding what R is doing.

By the end of the day participants will be able to:

  • Understand the history of R and why it is useful to them
  • Direct themselves around the R interface in an efficient way
  • Import and export their own data from spreadsheets and a number of other data storages to R
  • Summarise the data with R’s built in summary statistic functions
  • Plot data in interesting ways
  • Manipulate data in ways such that they can efficiently analyse data

Course outline

  • Introduction to R: A brief overview of the background and features of the R statistical programming system
  • Data entry: A description of how to import and export data from R
  • Data types: A summary of R’s data types
  • R environment: A description of the R environment including the R working directory, creating/using scripts, saving data and results
  • R graphics: Creating, editing and storing graphics in R
  • Summary statistics: Measures of location and spread
  • Manipulating data in R: Describing how data can be manipulated in R using logical operators
  • Vector operations: Details of R’s vectors operations
