Introduction to R

Course Level: Foundation

R is a versatile language for statistical computing and graphics. In this course you will learn the advantages of using R and how to get started. You will gain familiarity with the RStudio interface and learn the R basics. Also included is an introduction to the Tidyverse and how to use various packages for data storage, visualisation and manipulation. This course provides a great foundation to begin your R journey!

Introduction to Python

Course Level: Foundation

This is a one-day intensive course on Python and assumes no prior knowledge. By the end of the course, participants will be able to import, summarise and plot their data. At each step, we avoid using “magic code”, and stress the importance of understanding what Python is doing.

Introduction to Shiny

Course Level: Intermediate

Do you want to provide interactive visualisation and data exploration features for users who do not have R and data science skills? Discover how easy it can be to use R and {shiny} to create your own apps and dashboards for exploring data without relying on web development or external BI tools. We will show you various examples of input widgets and outputs to display tables and visualisations.
