Interested to venture into the world of Data Analytics using free software like R but do not know where or how to start?
We invite you to participate in an upcoming introductory R workshop conducted by one of our NTU/NIE professors.
Here are the details:
R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. Since it is freely available under the GNU General Public License, it is widely used by scientists for data analysis. While the library has an excellent range of R reference books and e-resources, getting started in learning R programming can still be pretty daunting without some initial help. The aim of this workshop is to help students kick-start their own learning of R. We will work through a common problem of automating data extraction from multiple files, and performing simple statistical analysis in this hands-on session. By the end of the workshop, you will be more confident in learning more about R through the available reference books and e-resources on your own.
