Event description: 
We’ll use spatial data to introduce fundamental concepts for the R programming language and teach best coding practices useful for beginners and experienced alike. Goals include: (1) Experience useful for future, more specific workshops with BGC; (2) Setting up a workflow to make sure coding isn’t annoying; (3) Loops; (4) Writing functions; (5) Using raster (spatial) data; (6). Customizable pretty plots. 
 
Note: The skills in this workshop aren’t specific to biology, but will use biological examples. All members of the Yale community are welcome!
