Data Carpentry: From Data Wrangling to Data Visualisation

People working, graph overlay



Data Carpentry develops and teaches workshops on the fundamental data skills needed to conduct research. Its target audience is researchers who have little to no prior computational experience, and its lessons are domain-specific, building on learners' existing knowledge to enable them to quickly apply skills learned to their own research. Participants will be encouraged to help one another and to apply what they have learned to their own research problems. 

This course will cover the following topics: 

  • Data Organisation with Spreadsheets 

  • Cleaning Datasets with OpenRefine 

  • Introduction to Data Analysis with RStudio  

This is a beginner-level event, and no previous knowledge of the method is required.
