Session Description

This hands-on session will introduce participants to the “tidyverse” in R. It will use RStudio, a free program for R, explore the fundamentals of tidy data and data manipulation with the packages tidyr, dplyr, and stringr. This will include thinking about the organization of the data, getting from imperfect data formats to a “tidy” format (see “Tidy Data” by Hadley Wickham), and working with the data once it is in a tidy format.
