Data Wrangling in R
- Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 2:30pm to 5:00pm
- MSU Library, Heathcote Classroom - view map
This workshop is aimed primarily at graduate students, but all are welcome. In this workshop, you will learn how to manipulate data in R using the dplyr and tidyr packages. Using dplyr, you will master the verbs of data manipulation to select, filter, mutate, arrange, and summarise your data, as well as, how to chain these operations together using the pipe operator. You will learn concepts of wide and long data formats, for which purposes each of these formats are useful, and how to reshape data frames from long to wide and back. These concepts will be presented in an interactive format, integrating computational practice throughout the workshop. The workshop will be presented in the RStudio Cloud. Desktop computers are available in the Heathcote Classroom, or feel free to bring your own laptop.
