2-Day Software Carpentry Workshop in R 1/25-26/18 Medical campus


2-Day Software Carpentry Workshop in R at MEDICAL CAMPUS

Topics covered in this workshop:

  • The Unix shell
  • Version control with git
  • Programming with R

Since the goal of this workshop is to bring you up to speed with data analysis, it would be incomplete without instruction on a shell as well as a version control system. The shell is important in building reproducible data analysis pipelines where your R or Python scripts may be just one component, and git is an incredibly useful tool for version control, collaboration and management of your coding projects.

NOTE: Bring your own laptop (any OS).


This R Workshop is capped at 30 participants, and is on a first-come/ first-served basis.

  • If you are looking to make yourself competitive in the job market
  • If you want to take a personal project to the next level
  • If you are interested in playing with data

Then, this workshop is for you.

Our trained instructors will lead you through a comprehensive, hands-on overview of what you can do with R, using an example dataset. We will go from reading data into R to data types, functions, conditional statements, loops, how to write in RMarkdown, as well as best practices for writing R code that other people can understand and use. This workshop is designed to provide a foundation of basic concepts that all programming depends on, using R as an example.


Brought to you by the Center for Computational Science (CCS), the Miami Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), and the Graduate School, this 2-day workshop will provide you with the basic computing skills and best practices needed to be productive in a small research team. The format is a mixture of short seminars and hands-on practical exercises, and participants are encouraged to help one another, and to try applying what they have learned to their own research problems during and between sessions.


Instructor: Alejandro Mantero, PhD Candidate in Biostatistics, University of Miami
