Introduction to Statistical Computing with R

When? 27 Aug 2018, 09:30 to 16:15

Do you want to get into one of the most up and coming programming language for data science? This R summer camp will get you going! We cover most commonly used data structure for (social) sciences, importing of datasets as well as manipulating them. How you can deal with missing values as well as how to produce first statistics and pretty graphs. On top of that you will get an intro in the amazing typesetting functionalities of R markdown and pretty nifty RStudio add-ins that make your live easier.

Prerequisite: none!

Costs: McGill students and members of the CSDC: free of charge, other please contact the instructor. If demand exceeds capacity, preference will be given to incoming graduate students.

The workshop will run for four full days from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with an additional 45 minutes optional lab to practice your newly acquired skills. We most probably will have complimentary coffee breaks. The workshop is organized by Prof. Aaron Erlich and Prof. Thomas Soehl. The instructor is Dr. Tim Elrick.
