THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5, 2017, 9 A.M. – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 6, 2017, 5 P.M.
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.
