You teach me and I’ll teach you
Well, now I’m sharing another thing I made. It’s called Beginner R and RStudio Training (featuring Pokemon!). It’s an introduction to R, RStudio, R Projects, directory structure and the Tidyverse for beginners… and uses Pokemon Go data that I collected myself.1
You should go and visit the page where it’s hosted in all its glory.
I’d like to think it’s a work in progress, but I’ve since left the organisation and may not update it for some time. I know others have used some of the material in their own training sessions and I encourage you to fork it on GitHub and do the same.
Why bother making yet another training thing? Well, it reflects my own thinking and is therefore much easier for me to explain to others. Also… Pokemon.
Below are some other training materials you might like to look at.
Starting with R and RStudio
- Software Carpentry’s Programming with R
- Swirl teaches you R interactively, from within RStudio itself
- Further information about R Projects is available from the RStudio Support pages
- Starting data analysis/wrangling with R: Things I wish I’d been told by Stian Håklev
Data Science in R
Gotta badly draw ’em all
It didn’t escape your notice that I drew some stunning images for the training material. I’ve reproduced them here so you can enjoy them all in one place.2
