Current curriculum

Introduction to R

This four-week course is designed to introduce attendees to R statistical programming and its broad applications. Each two hour session will include brief tutorials interspersed with challenge exercises, and assumes attendees have no prior computer coding experience. At the end of this course, you will be able to use R to import, manipulate, and visualize data.

Git and GitHub

This two-week course (with optional third week session) is designed to introduce attendees to git version control software and GitHub as a repository for code and/or data. Each two hour session will include brief tutorials interspersed with challenge exercises. The first two sessions assume no prior programming knowledge. At the end of these two sessions, you will be able to use git to track changes to software and other files, and use GitHub to work collaboratively to publish repositories of code and/or data. The optional third session assumes attendees have a basic familiarity with using the command line to navigate through directories and work with files and will include an overview of the command line interface to access the full functionality of the git software.
