Series: R Intermediate Workshop
20210929 15:00-16:30
-R and R studio installed
-Registered for R workshop series
The series' goals are to impact project work by improving the understanding of data computing across the R and R Studio platforms, and extend knowledge of the packages largely contributing to data visualization capabilites, how they grow and are used.

This is the second workshop within a series meant only as an introduction to the R and R studio environment. Learning a new programming language, like a spoken language, takes years of practice, so it will not be possible to cover everything but many common features that most of you will use most of the time will be highlighted.
