Join us January 13-14 for a (virtual) Data Essentials Reboot! We’ll be offering two full days of data workshops online aimed at getting a jump start or a refresh on some useful data skills — from an Introduction to Linear Modeling in R, getting started with using the command line, getting up to speed with GitHub, and data visualization in Tableau.
Spend some time with us and others as we learn together over the long winter break! You can attend as many of the sessions as you’d like. Just be sure to register for the sessions you’d like to attend; we’re keeping the sessions limited so we can all stay engaged. Registration is required. Learn more at our website.
Want to learn a new data skill? There are lots of workshop series to choose from, including:
If you can't make the commitment to an entire workshop, think about attending the weekly Coffee & Coding. Join Coffee & Coding on Zoom every Thursday afternoon between noon and 12:30 for amazing coding tips that will streamline your research! No registration required, just join any of the 13 sessions as your schedule permits.
