The R Statistical Computing Environment: The Basics and Beyond
Dates: June 23-27, 2014
Location: Berkeley, CA
Instructor: John Fox, McMaster University
About this workshop: This five-day workshop will introduce R, a free,
open-source implementation of the S language that is available for Windows,
Mac OS X, and Unix/Linux systems.
The R statistical programming language and computing environment has become
the de facto standard for writing statistical software among statisticians.
In the past few years, it has also made substantial inroads in the social
sciences. R makes routine data analysis easy and supports convenient
programming. Users of R have taken advantage of its extensibility to
contribute more than 5,000 freely available "packages" of documented R
programs and data to CRAN (the Comprehensive R Archive Network) and many
others to the Bioconductor package archive. R is also particularly capable
in the area of statistical graphics.
Each day of the workshop will combine four to five hours of lectures and
demonstrations with two to three hours of hands-on labs. We will begin with
an introduction to R, including statistical modeling in R -- in effect,
using R as a statistical package. After that, the workshop will provide the
background required to use R seriously for sophisticated data analysis,
programming, and presentation.
