Communication and Social Networks (Spring 2021)/R Lab 1
This lab has three goals:
- Get your R environment is set up correctly
- Introduce you to the idea of R Markdown files
- Create your first network graph
You should have R and R Studio installed by now. In practical terms, that means there should be an RStudio icon somewhere on you computer. If you open RStudio, it should look something like this:
If you have had problems getting R installed, then look over this tutorial again and if you still can't get it then reach out on Discord and we'll get it figured out.
- Once you have RStudio installed, read and watch the BasicBasics 1 and 2 tutorials from the R-Ladies Sydney group.
- Right-click on this document, save it, and then open it in RStudio.
- Read through the file and try "knitting" it to an output document
- Finish the exercise at the end and see how that changes the output
