R

R is a general-purpose programming language that is great for the digital humanities.

Learning R fundamentals is a gateway to analyzing data, creating visualizations, composing interactive websites, scraping the internet, and engaging in distant reading of texts.

The R fundamentals session is an introduction to the essentials of R and the Tidyverse.

We will do this by introducing some essential parts of R and then working through Chapter 1 of Text Mining With R.

By the end, we will have imported multiple classic books into R and compare word usage between their authors.

Download and use this code file: chapter 1.R.
