|The tidyverse is essential for any statistician or data scientist who deals with data on a day-to-day basis. By focusing on small key tasks, the tidyverse suite of packages removes the pain of data manipulation.
This course assumes basic familiarity with R, e.g. the Introduction to R and participants should bringtheir own laptop.
The core tidyverse data structure is a tibble; this is a modern take on the data frame. The course commences with a brief introduction to this structure.
DPLYR: THE WORKHORSE OF THE TIDYVERSE
Before the first coffee break, we’ll tackle the dplyr package. This package forms the foundation of the tidyverse by providing a standardised data manipulation grammar.
Your data should be tidy. An obvious statement, except what do we mean by tidy? This section will elucidate what we mean by tidy data and how to make it part of our workflow.
In order to manipulate data, we need to be able to load data into R. We’ll cover the key packages and provide advice as required.
We’ll finish the day by looking at common difficulties that may crop up in a data scientist’s day
