This is an experiment in running some short, informal training sessions to get people started with a programming approach to data management and analysis. We’ll be using R, but a lot of the concepts in R will transfer to other software.

There may also be some room to include some info about basic web design or other related topics - some of this can be done through R, and more info can be provided if needed.

Training will be pitched at the beginner level - you don’t need to know the difference between a CSS and a CSV file to get started.

I’ll run short lunchtime sessions, working through each topic at a relaxed pace with plenty of time for questions.

What to bring:

  • Your fancy new laptop: these will be practical, hands-on sessions.
  • Your lunch: don’t skip food in favour of programming.

Please join us for the first session: Getting Started With R

Can’t attend?

Material that I put together for these sessions will be added to this blog, which will hopefully grow into a useful resource as the sessions continue.

You can also download PDF and epub versions of all the material using the toolbar at the top. Right now the material is being regularly updated, so please remember to check for updates:
