On September 15 and 16, Intersect delivered its Data Manipulation and Visualisation in R training course to a cohort of 28 trainees from members of the Queensland Cyber Infrastructure Foundation (QCIF). This was the first of a series of training workshops forming part of the trial training program exchange between the two organisations being conducted in September and October.
Data Manipulation and Visualisation in R is designed for researchers with a good working knowledge of the basic concepts and techniques in R. It builds on basic concepts to explore the manipulation, transformation and visualisation of data using advanced R packages such as dplyr, tidyr, and ggplot2.
The workshops for QCIF members continue over the next two weeks with Intersect will running the following workshops for QCIF member researchers:
QCIF will likewise make three of its workshops open to Intersect member researchers in October, including:
- Statistical Comparisons using R, 16 October
- Exploring and Predicting Using Linear Regression in R: 22 October
The QCIF and Intersect training exchange is part of a broader collaboration between the two organisations, which also includes a recent partnership to refresh Australia’s cloud computing network for research.
