WinteR of LeaRning 2024 Workshops

Are you interested in starting the new year with some new data science skills? We invite you to participate in our 2024 WinteR of LeaRning workshop series! These 12 one-hour workshops are focused on R-based data science and are designed for learners of all skill levels. The course materials will provide practical ways to integrate tools and skills into research analysis workflows.

Participants can attend virtually or in person at the Mission Bay FAMRI Library. In addition, all workshops will be recorded, and slides and code notebooks will be released before the workshop each week. Even if you can’t attend all 12 workshops, we encourage you to register so you can receive the materials. Let’s get staRted!
