Intermediate R Programming and Reproducible Research

Intermediate R Programming and Reproducible Research
Event on 2018-03-19 12:00:00
About the Workshop Series In the first part of this workshop series we will teach the general principles for reproducible computer-based  analyses, along with specific methods and tools for reproducibility with R. You will: • learn how to construct reproducible, automatable computer workflows for data analysis, • learn to make document production a part of your reproducible workflow, • be introduced to Github – an online platform for personal and group projects The remainder part of the workshop will help you use R as a programming environment, allowing you to write more complex, yet clearer data analysis code. We will cover two fundamental concepts of R programming: functions and packages. Functions encapsulate a sequence of computations. You will learn: • the syntax of R functions • how functions can be reused and composed with your analytic workflows • guidelines for writing clear and reliable code Packages are R’s main method for creating and sharing bundles of related functions, classes, datasets, and help pages. You will learn: • the structure of a package, • how R manages libraries of installed packages, • how they are used to share both code and analyses Workshop 1: Monday, March 19th, 12:00 – 2:00pm Workshop 2: Wednesday, March 21st, 2:00 – 4:00 pm Workshop 3: Friday, March 23rd, 2:00 – 4:00 pm Pre-requisites “Introduction to R” and “Working with Data” workshop series or equivalent knowledge of R.
