Functions in R


Functions in R

The goal of this workshop is to teach R programmers how to compartmentalise their code using functions. In this one-hour workshop we will give you a glimpse into the benefits of creating function for your own data analysis. More importantly, you will learn how to create your own functions from scratch!

Please note that the training is aimed at people who have attended the R introductory workshops or have some basic R knowledge.

Learning Objectives:

  • I understand how functions can be useful in coding.
  • I understand the basic structure of a function.
  • I can create a function and run the function such that it transforms an input into a desired output.

Pablo Franco is a PhD candidate at the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Melbourne. He studies how people make decisions that involve solving complex problems (for instance, choosing insurance or even choosing what to buy at the supermarket). He does this by integrating insights from neuroscience, psychology, economics and computer science. He uses several programming languages for his data analysis, including R and python, but he is, first and foremost, an R enthusiast and promoter.
