Basics of R Studio

During this training, DFRLab experts will introduce you to R, a programming language you can use to collect, analyze, and visualize data. Researchers will be introduced to several R packages that can be useful specifically for working with social media data, as well as to R Studio, an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for R that provides an intuitive interface.

To join this training, you don’t need any pre-existing experience with R or programming, but you may want to download R and R Studio on your computer ahead of time at the following links:

1. R: https://cran.rstudio.com/

2. R Studio: https://rstudio.com/products/rstudio/download/

Recommended for beginners and participants who want to refresh their knowledge of R and other programming software. However, please be advised that this is technical training and some basic programming background/knowledge is advisable.
