Social Network Analysis is to visualize and analyze data from a social network like Twitter or Facebook. If you're involved in analytics in any capacity, this course will be a huge help, teaching you how the R SNA and igraph modules works and how to format data for analysis, create graphs, analyze network graphs, and visualize networks.
- Basic knowledge of R programming, but no knowledge of social network analysis required.
- Please make sure you have the most recent version of R and RStudio installed on your computer.
Note: This workshop is organized and facilitated by SciProg. SciProg—short for Scientific Programming Study Group—is dedicated to building a community of SFU researchers who perform computational data analysis as part of their academic work. SciProg promotes skill sharing and collaboration by (1) organizing 60 to 90-minute interactive workshops covering a wide range of software tools, (2) providing Q&A sessions for peer-to-peer assistance and collaboration, and (3) bringing researchers together at social events like Hacky Hours.
