# CANCELLED: Introduction to R Programming

## May 22 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

**Due to a medical emergency, the UCLA Statistical Methods and Data Analytics regretfully must cancel the “Introduction to Programming in R” workshop scheduled for May 22, 2023 at 1 PM. We hope to try to deliver this workshop again later this year in August or September.**

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.
