XCME003 - Introduction to Programming in R

Overview: This workshop is recommended for those who want to learn the basics of R programming in statistics, science, or engineering. The goal of the workshop is to familiarize participants with R's tools for scientific computing and data analysis. Lectures will be interactive with a focus on learning by example, and assignments will be application-driven. No prior programming experience is needed.Topics Include

  • Basic data types in R, variables, and apply functions
  • Data input/output
  • Plotting in base R, ggplot, and ggmap
  • Metacharacters and regular expressions in R
  • Statistical applications: such as how to get a summary of the data, how to do linear regressions, and how to interpret the output
