    Intermediate Python

    Location: 

    Rm K018, 1737 Cambridge St (CGIS Knafel Building)
    9:30am to 12:30pm

    Instructor: Kareem Carr

    This course is a survey of advanced features of the python programming language that are relevant to data analysis.  This includes exposure to some of the most powerful features of python, such as functional and object-oriented programming.  In addition, we will learn how to use inspection to learn about the undocumented features of new modules and data structures.

    Basic R Programming for Data Analysis

    Location: 

    Rm K018, 1737 Cambridge St (CGIS Knafel Building)
    9:30am to 12:30pm

    Instructor: Ista Zahn
    This hands-on, intermediate course will guide you through a variety of programming functions in the open-source statistical software program, R. It is intended for those already comfortable with using R for data analysis who wish to move on to writing their own functions. To the extent possible this workshop uses real-world examples. Concepts will be introduced as they are needed for a realistic analysis task. In the course of working through a realistic project we will lean about interacting with web services, regular expressions, iteration, functions, control flow and more.

    Prerequisite: basic familiarity with R, such as acquired from an introductory R workshop.
