R is a programming language and free software environment for data analysis and exploration. User instruction in R is often limited to course specific content, that focuses primarily on the statistical implementation of R. However R functionality extends far beyond this and across research disciplines. When combined with the RStudio GUI, R can be utilised as a powerful tool encompassing data cleaning, exploration, visualisation and documentation operations.

The dual aim of these workshops is to (A) demonstrate a reproducible data analysis workflow through an example RStudio project and (B) highlight how the reorganisation of popular R packages, under the umbrella banner of the “tidyverse”, has made working R code more accessible and intuitive.

Essential Requirements:

  1. Your own laptop
  2. R and RStudio pre-installed and running
  3. The tidyverse R package loaded and running
  4. Familiarity with R and RStudio
  5. Experience writing and running R code
