This one-day tutorial will introduce participants to the statistical programming language R, and to a set of tools known as the “tidyverse” that can be used to load, clean, explore, analyze, and visualize complex data. Examples will be drawn from software engineering datasets; participants must be comfortable programming, but do not need previous exposure to R.
Dr. Greg Wilson has worked for 35 years in both industry and academia, and is the author or editor of several books on computing and two for children. He is best known as the co-founder of Software Carpentry, a non-profit organization that teaches basic computing skills to researchers, and is now part of the education team at RStudio.
Participants should have RStudio installed on their laptop.
