Our schedule will look something like this:

Every week we will be covering the first steps to scientific programming from scratch. This workshop assumes no prior programming knowledge.

Rough Schedule:    
Week 1 (July 11, 2019) Getting started with R Fundamentals of programming, using functions, data types, importing and manipulating data.
Week 2 (July 18, 2019) Make your own functions. Plotting with ggplot.
Week 3 (July 25, 2019) Making choices (if/else statements). Using dplyr to subset and summarize your data.
Week 4 (Aug 1, 2019) Repeating yourself. Continuation of dplyr, then a tidyr section if we get to it.
