This is a remote workshop that combines live sessions on Zoom with independent work on recommended exercises and materials. See the workshop site for details on the schedule and expectations of participants.

If this workshop does not fit with your schedule, or you have significant experience with other programming languages, you may want to use our recommended resources for learning R on your own instead.

Prerequisites: This workshop is designed for beginners with limited or no prior programming experience; however, we strongly recommend you also register for the Programming Concepts workshop if you are unfamiliar with any of the following terms: working directory, vector, boolean, string, list index, function, or any of the other content covered in the Programming Concepts workshop.
