This hands-on, intermediate course will guide you through a variety of programming functions in the open-source statistical software program, R.
It is intended for those already comfortable with using R for data analysis who wish to move on to writing their own functions. To the extent possible this workshop uses real-world examples. Concepts will be introduced as they are needed for a realistic analysis task. In the course of working through a realistic project we will lean about interacting with web services, regular expressions, iteration, functions, control flow and more.
Prerequisite: basic familiarity with R, such as acquired from an introductory R workshop.
Bring your own laptop and install R (https://www.r-project.org/) and RStudio (https://www.rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/) before the workshop.
Offered in conjuction with Data Science Services at Harvard's Institute for Quantitative Social Science.
