Date & Time: This workshop is a 2-part series running from 2pm-5pm each day:

  • Part 1: Monday, September 12
  • Part 2: Wednesday, September 14

Start Time: D-Lab workshops start 10 minutes after the scheduled start time (“Berkeley Time”). We will admit all participants from the waiting room at that time.


It is said that 80% of data analysis is spent on the process of cleaning and preparing the data for exploration, visualization, and analysis. This R workshop will introduce the dplyr and tidyr packages to make data wrangling and manipulation easier. Participants will learn how to use these packages to subset and reshape data sets, do calculations across groups of data, clean data, and other useful tasks.

Prerequisites: D-Lab’s R Fundamentals or equivalent knowledge; previous experience with base R is assumed.
