R introductory workshop in webinar format
Date: 6 February 2013
Location: VIA webinar platform (from your own computer)
Time: 9h00 - 17h00
To register for this 1-day workshop, you should contact Marc Mazerolle. The workshop is free to Center of Forest Research members, 65$/day for student non-members, and 125$/day for non-students.
Participants will attend the workshop from their own computer. A recent computer is required (< 2 years) working under Windows, Mac, or Linux, along with a high-speed internet connection (wire connection, not wifi). Each participant will receive an invitation to log on to the web site of the webinar. The webinar works with the Adobe Flash Player plugin in Internet Explorer or Firefox.
To provide the best sound quality, it is recommended to use a headset with headphones and a microphone.
Participants should download and install the most recent version of R before the day of the workshop. Also note that an 'intelligent' editor greatly enhances writing R code and interacting with R (i.e., sending commands). One such editor is RStudio which works on all platforms and can be downloaded freely.
