This nine-hour hands-on workshop is an exploration of the Tidyverse as a tool to wrangle your data in preparation for analysis.
Day 1 will cover basic dplyr funcitonality including
summarize and then moves into the concept of tidy data and pivots.
Day 2 will cover special variable types and advanced creation of new variables. Specifically, we will cover
case_when, factors with
forcats, dates with
lubridate, and strings and regular expressions with
Day 3 will cover relational data and joins in addition to more advanced and cutting edge dplyr functions like
rowwise. After diving into
