R Workshop

Note that you need to be in your second year or higher to follow this workshop.

Do you want to learn more about the programming language R?

R is used in a lot of companies but can also be used during the process of writing your thesis. It is a programming language that is used when working with big data sets and should be in the tool box of every econometrician!

Join this workshop and you will learn the basics of the programming language and how it can be applied on problems in econometrics.

The workshop will be split into two sessions on the 5th and 12th of November from 15h-17h. Note that by signing up for this workshop you have to attend both sessions.

Make sure to take a laptop with the programmes R, Miktex(Mactex for Mac) and R-Studio installed. If you have not installed any of them I recommend installing them in this order:
