LOS! Workshop: Introduction to R
R is an open source statistical software that is used in many scientific disciplines. It can be used free of charge, offers a wide range of functions and packages for various fields of application, and is constantly being further developed by a dynamic community – so it is not surprising that R is also becoming increasingly popular among researchers.
In this two-day workshop on July 14 and July 21 (9 AM until 12 PM), participants will get an insight into working with R and RStudio and the possibilities these applications offer. Special emphasis will be placed on basic operations for processing tabular data (such as reading, editing, and saving) as well as on calculating descriptive statistical characteristics. Practical exercises, which will be discussed together, will round off the workshop. This should provide a starting point for participants to further deepen the acquired basic knowledge of R on their own.
