Week of R

Jan 07 R: Working with data
9:00am - 4:00pm Whether you are absolutely new to R, or a novice, this is the course for you! Welcome! In this course, you will learn the basics of R & Rstudio, how to write your own R scripts and get an introduction to the tidyverse. We'll start with the beginning and quickly get you up to speed with the basic tools of data exploration. You will learn how to import and manage data sets, create R objects, install and load R packages, and how to ask for help in R. You will also learn to use the Knitr package to write reports, webpages, and take notes using R. Eventbrite - ISU Statistics: Get Going with R
Jan 08 ggplot2 graphics with R
9:00am - 4:00pm ggplot2: One graphics package to rule them all! The package ggplot2 gives a framework to produce elegant, high-end graphical displays following the technical framework of the Grammar of Graphics (Wilkinson 2000). You will learn how to create a wide variety of graphical displays in R. We will use a lot of data examples to work through the basic plots as well as more advanced tools, such as faceting, colors, themes and more. We will end the day with interactive & animated graphics in R. Eventbrite - ISU Statistics: Graphics with ggplot2
Jan 09 R: Programming with data
9:00am - 4:00pm This workshop will to prepare you for dealing with messy data by walking you through real-life examples. We will work on improving your programming skills and help you move beyond using copy-and-paste. We will discuss how to write functions in order to reduce duplication in your code and automate common tasks and how to use iteration in order to further reduce duplication. You will leave with skills that will allow you to both tackle problems with more ease. Eventbrite - ISU Statistics: Data Wrasslin' with R
Jan 10 - morning Shiny applets
10:00am - 1:00pm What can we say about Shiny? It's EPIC! Learn how to create interactive, web-based applets entirely within R! The shiny package allows us to create interactive applets for teaching, data analysis, or publication, without requiring knowledge of HTML or JavaScript!. See some of the fantastic applets in the Shiny showcase, and learn how to create applets of your own in our workshop.
This session is designed as a workshop, so bring your data and analysis code, and leave with a Shiny applet! (If you don't have data you'd like to use for this, we'll provide you with some data to play with!)
