Lectures by Topics


Note: The content reflects the Fall 2021 lectures. Details for Fall 2022 are not finalised, but expected to be similar.

We have several key topics

  • Shell including grep, awk, sed
  • Git and GitHub, Markdown, SQL
  • R and RStudio Basic Building Blocks
  • Advanced R Usage
  • Visualization with R
  • R Packages and Scripts
  • Introduction to Docker

which usually form blocks of (generally) four lectures over a two week period.

The links on the left lead to ‘per block’ pages with lectures, video, sometimes example data sets and often supplementary (optional) reading.
