Attendees will need to have either some basic knowledge about using R or have previously attended the Introduction to R for Absolute Beginners workshop in order to take this one.

This workshop will give an overview of the concepts of data cleaning and go into great detail with tidyr package. The instructor will walk attendees through the basic data cleaning steps with tidyr package for the first part of this workshop. Then attendees will apply these skills to clean a dataset downloaded from Kaggle at the second part of this workshop.
