This is part 1 of a 5-part series of workshops on programming in R. This week, we’ll discuss the following topics: creation and naming of objects, R’s global environment, arithmetic operations, R’s package system, and reading and writing data. These workshops follow a hybrid format: a week before the scheduled meeting time participants will be given access to pre-recorded content and recommended readings to review at their own pace. The following week, we’ll meet at the posted time for 90 minutes over Zoom to answer questions and work on a collection of exercises. At the end of the course, we’ll gather for a 3-hour practicum, in which we’ll program a console version of the game “Mastermind”.
