R Course: Lesson 0

Guest post by Page Piccinini

After telling you about my R imposter syndrome two weeks ago, I will start sharing my R course material with you here, beginning with the first lesson (well, Lesson 0) today.

This lesson is meant to set up your R working environment and get you familiar with RStudio, Git, and Bitbucket. This lesson does not include any substantial coding in R, but will situate you for productive R coding, including creating separate working environments for different projects and version control for any scripts. With these practices in place you will be a more productive R programmer in the long run, whether you are working alone or with other researchers.

For full materials, see the course website for Lesson 0.
