Are you sick and tired of manually manipulating data in Excel? Are you eager to level up your data science programming by learning the most widely used open-source statistical analysis language? C2ER and LMI Institute’s R for Beginners workshop will provide a complete crash course on the full data science workflow, from cleaning and wrangling to visualization.

Two RStudio Certified Tidyverseinstructors will cover the essentials of popular R packages, including:

  • ggplot2, 
  • tidyr, 
  • dplyr, 
  • tidymodels,
  • and rmarkdown.

Code will be made available to attendees via RStudio Cloud before and after this hands-on-keyboard session, allowing beginnerlevel users to dive right in and revisit materials after training. No programming experience is required for the workshop; however, interested attendees are encouraged to explore the online book R for Data Science, which can be found at https://r4ds.had.co.nz/ . The curriculum will be tailored to the C2ER and LMI Institute audience, featuring BLS data and easy ways to include economics and labor data in your code. 

 Please note this training is live instruction via Zoom.
