Overview
The Advanced Data Wrangling Workshop aims to help students to learn powerful data wrangling tools and techniques in R to wrangle data with less pain and more fun. The workshop will show how R can make your data wrangling process faster, more reliable, and interpretable. The workshop focuses on introducing new package developments in the tidyverse, particularly dplyr 1.0.0, and it has something new and exciting even for experienced R users. The workshop will first examine how to reshape and manipulate data (Part 1) and discuss how to summarise data using the tidyverse packages (Part 2). 
 
Prerequisites: R-Fundamentals parts 1-4 or equivalent knowledge + familiarity with the tidyverse. Make sure your R version is greater than or equal to 3.9. 
 
Make sure to install the tidyverse before the start of the workshop by following these instructions: https://tidyverse.tidyverse.org/
 
Check that your dplyr package is up-to-date by typing packageVersion("dplyr"). If the current installed version is less than 1.0.0, then update it by typing update.packages("dplyr"). You may need to restart R to make it work.
