AAI17013 - R Programming - Stage 2 (Intermediate)

<p>R Programming - Stage 2 is the intermediate R Programming one (1) day short course for those who have completed R Programming – Stage 1 or for those who consider themselves to have a working knowledge of R.<br><br> In stage 2 of R Programming we will move forward to cover more of the visualisation and statistical methods in R. We will deal with larger datasets and will need to process them quite significantly when we import them. We will learn to use more advanced multivariate techniques for visualisation, and we’ll investigate interactive visualisations. We’ll also look at some more statistical techniques and will introduce concepts to do with analysing time-series data. Finally, we’ll look at some newer ways of iteratively developing analysis methods using the ‘chaining’ of data manipulation methods.</p> <p><b> Who will benefit?</b><p> This program is particularly useful for (audience) <ul><li> Students undertaking a research program that requires data analysis skills <li>Researchers & Academics who wish to explore modern statistical languages <li>Industry Practitioners who wish to process data using R.</ul> <p><b> Program topics:</b></p> <ul> <li> Iteratively developing analysis procedures in R <li>Reading data from online sources <li>Parsing data from untidy data files <li>Multivariate plotting for exploratory data analysis <li>Building interactive graphics for presenting data through web applications <li>Building interactive dashboard systems <li>Reformatting and reshaping data <li>Reproducible research <li>The ‘split-apply-combine’ strategy and other chaining strategies for data analysis <li>The ‘List’ data structure and its use in R. <li>Fitting statistical models <li>Introductory time-series statistical techniques.</ul> <p><b> Course outcomes:</b><br> Upon completion of this course, students will be able to:</p> <ul><li> Navigate and clean large data files. <li>Interactively explore and visualise datasets to answer questions. <li>Develop analysis procedures that scale to large datasets.</ul> <p><b> About the presenter:</b><p> Sam Ferguson is a Lecturer in the School of Software, Faculty of Engineering and IT at the University of Technology, Sydney. He has used R in a many of his approximately 35 publications in areas as diverse as spatial hearing and loudness research, to sonification, emotion, and tabletop computing. He has 10 years’ experience teaching programming and technical topics, and has taught numerous subjects at the postgraduate and undergraduate level at the University of Technology, Sydney, the University of Sydney and at UWS. He has been a research fellow or assistant on more than 6 ARC research projects (many of which used R as their primary data analysis language).<br><br></p> <p><b>Additional information</b></p> <ul><li>Assessment within Short Course <li>Post Short Course follow up and engagement <li>Survey and feedback process <li>Online readings</ul><p> <p><b>Fees:</b></p> <ul><li>Full fee - $900.00 (GST free) <li> UTS Alumni and staff <li> 2 or more from the one organisation <li> Interstate participant <li>Enrol in any 2 stages - in addition to discount already eligible (upfront payment) <li>Enrol in all 3 stages - in addition to discount already eligible (upfront payment)</ul> <p>Please select discount option with drop down box before entering your credit card details.
