Master the Tidyverse: An Introduction to R for Data Science (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Continuing Education Course
This two-day workshop covers the new book "R for Data Science" from Hadley Wickham and Garrett Grolemund. The workshop provides a comprehensive overview of what is now called the Tidyverse, a core set of R packages that are essential to Data Science. We will visualize, transform, and model data in R and work with date-times, character strings, and untidy data formats. Along the way, you will learn to use the brightest stars in the tidyverse: the ggplot2, dplyr, tidyr, readr, purrr and tibble packages along with stringr, lubridate, hms, and forcats. Our objective will be to learn to use R to do the main tasks of data analysis efficiently. A basic knowledge of R syntax is assumed.
