Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this course will be taught remotely via Zoom, and not in the Turing lab.  I will post the meeting links in Studentportalen before each class beings:

Lecture 01: https://uu-se.zoom.us/j/680422318 Meeting ID: 680 422 318


All slides and other files displayed during lectures will be uploaded to Studentportalen after each lecture.


In this course we will make extensive use of the RStudio software (which sits on top of the R software).  All this software is free (in both senses of the word!), and works on Windows, Mac and Linux computers.  During the first class there will be time dedicated to downloading and installing this software, but if you are able to install it yourself on your own computer in advance of the class, things might run faster and more smoothly.  If you can't install software on your computer (e.g. because you don't have admin rights), you can try using a cloud version of Rstudio instead, which only requires a web browser.  Using the cloud version will be quicker and easier than installing the desktop version, but you won't be able to use it without an internet connection and, like everything in the cloud, you never know when it will suddenly disappear or start asking for money.  So install the real software if you can!


I will set up a Bulletin Board in Studentportalen for the course and will open one "official" thread per lecture where students can discuss the material for that lecture, ask questions, etc.  Of course, you can start your own threads too when approrprite.  I will keep a regular eye on the bulletin board.
