Learning how to code can be intimidating, but will save you time and effort in the long run. This session will cover basic analysis of tabular data in R studio.
Goals and Target Audience:
By the end of this session, you will be able to load data into R, calculate summary statistics, split the data based on categorical variables and create exploratory graphs using R's basic graphics package. This session is geared toward beginners, so if you have lots of coding experience, this may not be the class for you.
