Introduction to Data Visualization and Analysis with R — Continuing Education Course
ASA , Section on Statistical Computing , Section on Statistical Graphics , Section for Statistical Programmers and Analysts
Instructor(s): John W Emerson, Yale University, Hadley Wickham, Rice University
This full-day course will take you beyond a standard introduction to R, emphasizing the use of statistical graphics for data exploration and analysis. It will include topics such as visualization with base graphics and ggplot2; an introduction to grid graphics programming; data manipulation with plyr; and introductory parallel programming with foreach. The course will provide several real-data examples for graphical exploration and statistical analysis. You don't need to know R, although a basic familiarity with R or experience programming or scripting in another language or environment would be useful.
