Introduction to R
R is probably the best environment for data analysis, and is the choice of many data scientists and business analysts. This 3 day workshop will introduce R to these audiences and provide the basic skills needed for conducting data analysis projects independently in R. The workshop adopts a hands-on, interactive approach.
It is comprised of a few “interactive demonstration” modules that introduce key concepts. In these modules we follow a well documented R script, occasionally deviating from it to answer questions and deepen our understanding of the material presented. Interspersed between these demonstrations are in-class exercises in which participants have the opportunity to solve real (sometimes a bit simplified) business cases, using R by themselves. Finally there is always room for participants to bring their own data to the class, and discuss how to perform their task in R.
This modular structure enables to cater for the specific needs of participants and their organization. The typical workshop takes a minimum of 2 full days (2×8 hours), but 3 are advised. More “open audience” consultation time can be added as well as more modules to cover additional topics and statistical methods.
