Workshop Description

R is a language and computing environment for statistical analysis and graphics that is free and open-source. R can be used for multiple purposes, including statistics, data cleaning, visualization and creating data-driven web applications. R is very useful for producing publication-quality graphs from data. 

This workshop is an introduction to R for absolute beginners who have little or no prior experience with coding. No experience with coding is expected. If you have a solid coding background, this workshop may be too introductory for you. 
Mac laptops will be provided for participants to use, but you are welcome to bring your own laptop. NOTE: if you bring your own laptop, please download the following software (in the order listed) before coming to the workshop AND arrive 15 minutes early to get assistance in setting up your computing environment.
