Tech Kits

Tech Kits are part of the walk-in service provided by OPIM Innovate. There are three levels of difficulty meant for different users and their experience with the different technologies. Many of the Tech Kits build off each other as you progress.

Beginner

Introducing R Programming

Length: 30 - 60 Minutes

Description: R is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is both widely used and open-source, providing great flexibility for data analysis. This tech kit provides an overview of the R interface along with a number of examples involving arithmetic operations, variables, comparison operators, vectors, matrices, data frames and factors.

Intermediate

Exploring the Capabilities of R

Length: 30 - 60 Minutes

Description: R is not just a statistical platform for data cleaning, analysis, and representation. It simplifies data science projects by facilitating data wrangling, supporting data visualization, offering valuable R libraries, and streamlining machine learning efforts. In this tech kit, the user explores using packages, relational operators, conditional operators, loops, and functions within R to prove why it is so valuable.

Advanced

Recognizing the Versatility of R

Length: 30 - 60 Minutes

Description: Many useful R functions come in packages: free libraries of code written by R’s user community. In addition to built-in packages, over 5,000 packages are available for download. This tech kit explores importing, tidying, summarizing and visualizing data using built-in capabilities and additional packages.
