Python and R learning resources#

While we anticipate that most participants will have some experience with Python and/or R programming, we understand that everyone joining OceanHackWeek is coming from a different background and skill level in programming. Below are links to a few resources to refresh your skills in Python and R, as well as a tutorial video from a previous OHW event that covers a handful of Python packages. The material covered in these lessons is a good reflection of the level we expect participants to be at and should get you up-to-date on the basic programming skills needed for the workshop.



  • R for Reproducible Scientific Analysis - R is commonly used in many scientific disciplines for statistical analysis. This lesson teaches novice programmers to write modular code and covers best practices for using R for data analysis.
