About the training

During this training, you will learn to create and manage RStudio projects. The main focus of this training is placed on organizing your work properly, creating documentation, working on a code in collaboration and sharing your work with others.

This training is delivered using Live Script method, meaning that entire training is done in RStudio environment. Forget about boring and unproductive PowerPoints. In each section of the course, the trainer will guide you through the topics, showing how it can be performed in RStudio. Then you will be able to practice the knowledge by completing the exercises prepared for each section. The final part of the course is a case study – a complete project done by participants with the assistance of the trainer.

Who is this training for?

The training is addressed to those, who want to move from ad hoc analyses to structured, repeatable, and well-planned analyses in R. In particular, this training meets needs of professional researchers, analysts, developers and managers who work or would like to start working with R and RStudio.
