Introduction to the data science life cycle [LoveDataWeek]

Wednesday, February 15, 2023 12:30to14:30

Date: Wednesday, 15 February 2023.
Time: 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Location: online via Zoom.
Instructor: Eric D. Kolaczyk, Director, Computational & Data Systems Initiative (CDSI).


This workshop is part of Love Data Week at McGill #LoveData23.

Overview: This workshop presents an overview of the data science life cycle using the programming language R in the statistical programming environment RStudio. Using a simple data set, the instructor will walk participants through the different steps of the data science life cycle (e.g., manipulation, plotting, communication, code version control), presenting relevant R packages and representative commands for each step.

· Knowledge of file systems and RStudio would be helpful, e.g. from Understanding filesystems and Introduction to programming in R (workshops restricted to the McGill community).
