This is a two day workshop on Monday - Tuesday, Dec 11-12, 2023 on a hands-on on project organization and scientific authoring with RStudio
Participants will build on using their R data analysis skills in RStudio by learning how to create quarto documents that combine code, analysis, and narrative. RStudio makes it possible to work on a complete research project in a more efficient, integrated and organized manner: from data upload, cleaning, and analysis, to writing and styling a manuscript in quarto. This workshop will involve lectures and demos alternating with hands-on exercises, so by the end of the workshop, you will have “authored” a reproducible paper of your own with the data and narrative we provide.

Experience in R/Rstudio is recommended but not required. Experience, if not familiarity, with using your Unix Shell Terminal, and Version Control with Git is required. You will need a Github Account to fork and pull the example repo.

For this workshop, you may use the Jupyter Hub Instance that LSIT has setup for us with the software and packages preinstalled.

Please use your UCSB NETID to sign into the Jupyter Hub at:

Once you have signed in, click the RStudio Launcher button. You do not need to follow the setup instructions below if you plan on using the Jupyter Hub Interface rather than RStudio on your own computer

You will need the following software for this workshop if you choose to NOT use the Jupyter Hub Instance:

1. Install Git

2. Install R & Rstudio (two separate installation: if you are on a windows device, you may need Rtools)

3. Install Quarto CLI (version 1.3.4)

4. Install Packages (bayesfactor, tidyverse, bookdown, patchwork,usethis)

This event runs on Monday and Tuesday Dec 11 - 12, from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm.
