Software Carpentry - Intro to R

R is quickly gaining popularity as a programming language of choice for statisticians, data scientists and researchers. It has an excellent ecosystem, including the powerful RStudio development environment and the Shiny web application framework. Getting started with R can be challenging, particularly if you've never programmed before. That's where this introductory course comes in.

Join us for a live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation (software-carpentry.org).

Application is by expression of interest.
