DATA ANALYSIS WITH THE TIDYVERSE

Dates

19-22 July 2021

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, this course will be held online

OVERVIEW

 The Tidyverse is a set of packages that revolutionized data analytics in R. It offers an intuitive and powerful ecosystem that makes it easy to extract useful information from complex data frames. What is really awesome, is that the set of packages contained in the Tidyverse share the same philosophy, as such, the knowledge and proficiency that are acquired using a specific package can be extrapolated to the others.

TARGET AUDIENCE

This workshop targets researchers, data analysts, data engineers, and any professional aiming to synthetize pertinent information from raw and messy data inputs.

 

PREREQUISITES

  • A basic proficiency in R is required;
  •  During the workshop, we’ll work with the RStudio IDE (Integrated Development Environment), as such a basic familiarity is preferable;
  •  No prior knowledge of the Tidyverse is required.

Tools

 R: Available at https://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/. Note that it’s ok if you don’t have the latest version.

* install.packages(‘tidyverse’)   
* install.packages(‘readxl’)
* install.packages(‘rvest’)
* install.packages(‘vroom’)
