Winter 2020 Programming Workshops on Campus
In the past years I have offered
RStudio workshops within the Biochem Department (see links below.) R is both a language and a software environment for statistical computing and graphics.
R (and other languages) can be used through the amazing
RStudio interface for even more performance, ease and

SSCC (Social Science Computing Cooperative)
These courses are (again) free but regular attendance is requested and expected for longer courses. Relevant
python courses are as follows (and tought within
classic and the more recent
Tidyverse use different approach and coding, the latter often used for
data wrangling which is the process of cleaning and unifying messy and complex data sets for easy access and analysis. This method can be applied in both
R with Tidyverse and
Python with pandas.
|Data Wrangling in R||1/13, 1/14, 1/15, 1/16, 1/17||2:30 – 4:30||Hemken|
|Data Wrangling in Python Study Group||1/24, 1/31, 2/7, 2/14, 2/21, 2/28||2:30 – 4:00||Dimond|

R for researchers (Steenbock Library)
The Steenbock R series R programming Workshops on R programming for researchers [is] intended to anyone at the university who is working with tabular research data […] and would like to learn how to automate data processing using the R programming language.
Site with schedule:github.com/maglet/uw-r-workshops (might not be offered until Fall 2020.)
Workshop content, including previous sessions, can be found here: researchguides.library.wisc.edu/r
Update: Coding Meet-up
- Data Science Institute – Data Science Hub (1019 McArdle Building, 10th Floor))
- Meeting times will be Tuesdays, 2:30 – 4:30 during the semester
This is not a “workshop” per se but “a weekly co-working and getting help from others sessions.”
There are many
R options on Campus.
I am still planning specific offerings for
RStudio for the Winter/Spring.

RStudio, reproducible research and dynamic documents
Python 3for data analysis
