 About the workshop

This series of lessons will introduce you to the programming language R.  R is an open-source, widely used, and increasingly popular tool for statistical and data analyses, text mining, geospatial analysis, modelling, and a growing number of other applications.

The topics covered include:

  • the R environment (directories, workspace, scripts, and packages),
  • simple commands to get you started,
  • data structures (vector, matrix, data frames, lists),
  • basic data analysis tools (built-in statistical packages, plotting, etc.)

 As time permits, an introduction to functions may also be covered.


  • No prior knowledge is required. Students will learn the skills needed to start analyzing their own data.
  • Prior to attending the workshop, warticipants need to install the latest versions of both:

Attendance requirement:

You need to attend all 3 days. Different topics are covered each day and it builds on materials covered on the previous day, so if you miss a day, we won't have the resources to help you catch up in this online environment.
