Reproducible Research with R (IN-PERSON)

Wed 1 May - Thu 2 May 2024


This course introduces concepts about reproducibility that can be used when you are programming in R. We will explore how to create notebooks - a way to integrate your R analyses into reports using Rmarkdown. The course also introduces the concept of version control. We will learn how to create a repository on GitHub and how to work together on the same project collaboratively without creating conflicting versions of files.

If you do not have a University of Cambridge Raven account please book or register your interest here.
