Introduction to Julia for Statisticians and Data Scientists – Day 1
August 15 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
Rackham Building, Earl Lewis Room, 3rd Floor East
This three-part workshop will give an overview of the Julia language for conducting data analyses and managing data. The workshop assumes no prior experience with Julia, but participants should have prior programming experience with a language such as Python, R, or Matlab. The format of the workshop is lecture/discussion but participants may bring a laptop if they wish to have a hands-on experience. The instructor will be using Julia on greatlakes for demonstration so it is advisable (but not essential) for participants to have a greatlakes account.
Day 1: Introduction to the language and tools, managing data with dataframes, producing simple graphs
Day 2: Basic regression analysis using generalized linear models
Day 3: Intermediate regression analyses using GEE, mixed models, and survival analysis
