R is quickly gaining popularity as a programming language of choice for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem including the powerful RStudio development environment and the Shiny web application framework.

But getting started with R can be challenging, particularly if you’ve never programmed before. That’s where this introductory course comes in.

We teach using RStudio, which allows program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly.

Join us for a live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation.

You'll learn:

  • Introduction to the RStudio interface for programming
  • Basic syntax and data types in R
  • How to load external data into R
  • Creating functions (FUNCTIONS)
  • Repeating actions and analysing multiple data sets (LOOPS)
  • Making choices (IF STATEMENTS – CONDITIONALS)
  • Ways to visualise data in R
