Intro to R pt. 2: Demystifying Data Types

Logi's and vectors and bears, oh my! In this workshop, we will be learning about the different data types used in the R language, why you might want to use one type over another, and how to transform and swap your data between types. Additionally, we will learn about the different structures and shapes R uses to store your data, and how to access and change specific pieces of data within these structures. This session builds on the previous Intro to R pt. 1 workshop. If you were unable to attend this, don't worry. You can still get up to speed by having a look at the corresponding online gitbook chapter prior to the pt. 2 workshop.

Learning Objectives:

  • I understand the difference between data types in R (e.g. character, integer).
  • I know how coercion of data types work in R.
  • I understand the difference between data structures (i.e. data frame, list, vector).
  • I know how to interact with the different data structures (e.g. create a structure, access or change an element in the structure.)

Presenter

Jeremy Metha is a PhD candidate working between the Department of Finance and Department of Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the University of Melbourne. His work investigates the neural and neurochemical correlates of decision making, integrating behavioural neuroscience techniques with genetic and pharmacological interventions and computational modelling. He is a passionate R and RStudio user and will talk at length of their virtues to anyone willing to listen, reader beware!

This workshop will be repeated six times (Streams A-F). We encourage you to register for all 4 workshops in the same stream to help create a cohort experience amongst fellow participants.
