    Web Distributions Donec fermentum eu tortor eu dignissim. Curabitur elit diam, tempor in dui non, tincidunt rhoncus risus. Praesent pharetra nisl elit, vitae commodo odio rutrum et. Praesent ac ligula pharetra, mollis lorem tristique, convallis leo. Class aptent taciti sociosqu ad litora torquent per conubia nostra, per inceptos himenaeos. Nulla facilisi. Cras sit amet euismod elit, et iaculis ipsum. Fusce aliquet mauris sit amet elit euismod, in varius justo suscipit.
  • Advanced Data Visualization with R

    NEW This workshop will cover fundamental concepts for creating effective data visualization and will introduce tools and techniques for visualizing large, high-dimensional data using R. We will review fundamental concepts for visually displaying quantitative information, such as using series of small multiples, avoiding “chart-junk,” and maximizing the data-ink ratio. After briefly covering data visualization using base R graphics, we will introduce the ggplot2 package for advanced high-dimensional visualization. We will cover the grammar of graphics (geoms, aesthetics, stats, and faceting), and using ggplot2 to create plots layer-by-layer.
  • Advanced Data Manipulation with R

    Data analysis involves a large amount of janitor work - munging and cleaning data to facilitate downstream data analysis. This workshop is designed for those with a basic familiarity with R who want to learn tools and techniques for advanced data manipulation. It will cover data cleaning and “tidy data,” and will introduce participants to R packages that enable data manipulation, analysis, and visualization using split-apply-combine strategies. Upon completing this lesson, participants will be able to use the dplyr package in R to effectively manipulate and conditionally compute summary statistics over subsets of a “big” dataset containing many observations.
