Organization of the repository

Description of the course and other administrative files can be found in organization folder. However, you will probably care the most about the handouts, you can find these in handouts folder. As a rule I will give handout in pdf and html format - I recommend using html ones, they look nicer. These files are generated (usually) from R, using Rmarkdown package; you can find the source files in the source folder. Source files are usually better if you want to copy-paste some of the code, since these are text-files, without any formatting (unlike pdf or html). There is also resources folder where I will be putting useful things related to the classes - snippets of the code, articles etc.

Lectures are organized in a way so that the most of the time is spent learning-by-doing. Folder exercises will contain problems you will focus on during the class.

Licence

Finally, all the files you find in this folder comes with a licence. LICENCE file describes in what ways you can use them further down the line, after the classes are over.
