Description: This 2-part workshop series (January 17 and January 19, 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM) aims to help learners who are already familiar with R take a look under-the-hood at how the language works. This will make you a more confident and productive R programmer by making it easier for you to reason about code as you write and run it. You'll also learn how to debug code if it doesn’t do what you want.

This series is NOT an introduction to R. The target audience is motivated intermediate to advanced learners from all domains at UC Davis who want to hone their R skills. Please make sure you meet the prerequisites before registering.               

Learning Objectives

After completing this workshop series, learners should be able to:

Prerequisites: These workshops are not an introduction to R.

This series is appropriate for motivated intermediate to advanced users who want a better understanding of base R.  

Software: Latest version of the R programming language.
