R Training at Nicholls State University

I’ll be presenting two workshops back-to-back at Nicholls State University in Thibodaux Louisiana June 14-16. The first workshop will cover a broad range of R topics. Each topic will include a brief comparison to how R differs from the popular commercial data science packages, SAS, SPSS, and Stata. If you have a background in any of those packages, you’ll know the things that are likely to trip you up as you learn R. If not, you’ll just come away with a solid intro to R along with how it compares to other software.


The second workshop will focus on the broad range of data management tasks that are usually needed to prepare your data for analysis. Both workshops will be done using the very latest R packages to make things as easy as possible. These packages include tibble, dplyr, magrittr, stringr, lubridate, broom, and more.

Seats are still available at no charge with the Nicholls’ State community and other academics getting priority seating. To register for the workshop, please contact professor Allyse Ferrara, 985/448-4736, or allyse.ferrara@nicholls.edu.
