Public R workshops

Want to learn R? You’ve come to the right place. Our public, in-person workshops offer an intense one or two day experience to get you up and running with new techniques and technology. Our world class instructors and teaching philosophy make our workshops useful and enjoyable.

We hold workshops wherever demand is greatest. Let us know your interests and where you’re located so we can plan a workshop near you. RStudio will send you updates on all upcoming public workshops.

Upcoming public workshops

Extending the tidyverse by Hadley Wickham

San Francisco, CA
This is a NEW two-day hands on workshop designed for those who have embraced the tidyverse and now want to expand it to meet their own needs. The goal of this workshop is to take you from someone who uses tidyverse functions to someone who can extend the tidyverse by:

  • Writing expressive code using advanced functional programming techniques
  • Designs consistent APIs using analogies to existing tools
  • Uses the S3 object system to make user friendly values
  • Can bundle functions with documentation and tests into a package to share with others.

This course is taught by Hadley Wickham, RStudio’s Chief Scientist. Frankly, if you don’t already know more than you wanted to about him, you shouldn’t be taking this course!

Master the tidyverse by Garrett Grolemund

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2017, 9 A.M. – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2017, 5 P.M.
Washington DC
This two-day workshop covers the new book “R for Data Science” from Hadley Wickham and Garrett Grolemund. The workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what is now called the Tidyverse, a core set of R packages that are essential to Data Science. We will visualize, transform, and model data in R and work with date-times, character strings, and untidy data formats. Along the way, you will learn to use the brightest stars in the tidyverse: the ggplot2, dplyr, tidyr, readr, purrr and tibble packages along with stringr, lubridate, hms, and forcats. A basic knowledge of R syntax is assumed.

rstudio::conf is about all things R and RStudio!

In January 2017, 465 people attended, giving it an average score of 8.7 out of 10. Now you can join us and hundreds of advanced and new R users in San Diego January 31 to February 3, 2018 to become better at data science with R – and have some fun along the way!

For 2018 we’ve added more Training Days workshops for people newer to R and for advanced users and administrators. We’ve also expanded to three conference tracks: One for those newer to R, another for more experienced R users, and a third on solutions to interesting problems or industry applications.

Don’t miss the opportunity to network with RStudio users from around the world, learn from RStudio speakers and leading R practitioners, and enjoy the warm spirit of San Diego in January!
