This workshop is an introduction to R as a programming language. The aim of this workshop is to improve programming skills of R users who have some familiarity with R as a statistical package and would like to extend their R skills. We will talk about how R users can write functions to replace repetitive code and loops to iterate over the same algorithm repeatedly. Coding is essential in statistical computing and analysis, and as researchers sometimes we need to write our own computational code. We will also talk about some functional programming aspects of R so we can make our code more efficient.
The workshop notes will be posted soon.
