Meetup description

The meetup was awareness session for Yanina Belline Saibene and Pao Corrales Research Software Camp:Beyond the Spreadsheet workshop. This course is intended for people who use spreadsheets for data manipulation and analysis but would like to learn how to work with R and have never programmed.

Excel to R

Why would you use R over Excel?
R and Excel are beneficial in different ways. Excel starts off easier to learn and is frequently cited as the go-to program for reporting, thanks to its speed and efficiency. R is designed to handle larger data sets, to be reproducible, and to create more detailed visualizations.
We can find out more from our speaker Yanina Bellini Saibene.
