Enable the participants to write their own scripts in R to automatically evaluate data and solve recurring or labourious tasks by automation.
The course will introduce basic concepts of the language. Emphasis will be put on live coding (i.e. learners write their code along with the instructors) and overcoming the initial learning hurdles together. Hands-on exercises give the opportunity to test the newly acquired knowledge.
Neither prior knowledge nor experience in the area is needed. Participants are asked to bring their own computer on which they can install software. Detailed instructions will be made available on the workshop website.
