Users of R and RStudio are invited to bring their questions to this weekly, in-person office hour. Tutoring-style assistance is offered. If we don’t know the answer, we’ll help you look for it! Students, faculty, and staff are all welcome.
Example topics we have assisted participants with:
- base R (working with vectors, writing functions)
- importing (e.g., from CSV) and cleaning data
- using tidyverse to examine and filter data
- plotting using ggplot2
- troubleshooting error messages
- figuring out a workaround to a non-functional package
What you should bring: your laptop and your question/problem.
This service is provided free of charge for the Pitt community by the University Library System, Digital Scholarship Services. For questions, contact the Library here.
