Advanced Data Wrangling with R, Part III

Advanced Data Wrangling with R, Part III

In the final part of our advanced data wrangling series we focus on programming and automation with R. When you find yourself copying-and-pasting chunks of code, or re-running chunks of code with different variables, it’s probably a good time to consider writing your own R function to help automate the process. For example, imagine generating summary statistics or plots for all 400 variables in a survey data set. In this workshop we’ll cover how to create your own R functions and how to “apply” or “map” them to a series of values or parameters. By the end you’ll have valuable instructions and experience for tackling your own automation and programming issues. Prerequisites: basic experience using R, or successful completion of our Intro to R workshop. Successful completion of Parts 1 and 2 would also be helpful.
