# Content

The *We R Champions* masterclass series includes several masterclasses (that’s why we call it a series, don’t tell anyone, it’s a secret). There are fundamental, recommended, and nerd masterclasses (see color coding below). After each masterclass, you’ll walk away with the R software installed and a personal R script that you can use to reproduce everything that was covered. In the sections below, we go over the contents of each of them.

*Note that the recommended and nerd masterclasses are conditional on sufficient interest and available time.*

## We R Novices

In *We R Novices* you’ll learn..

- how to set up R
- what R can be used for
- how to use RStudio Desktop
- how to use good programming habits (projects, scripts, comments)
- how to navigate through R space (packages, vignettes, cheat sheets, Q&A)
- how to continue to learn and use R on your own
- how to use R without having to program

In *We R Novices* you’ll NOT learn..

- base R. Or at least not all of it. Because even though it’s the basis, it’s advanced. You’ll be able to learn it in the
*We R Programmers*masterclass. - how to do data analysis. You’ll learn it in the follow-up
*We R Analysts*masterclass. - how to get your data transformed and tidied. Instead, use your favorite data editor or learn how to do it in R in the
*We R Transformers*masterclass. - how to create figures. Becoming an artist takes more than an hour, but you’ll be able to learn it in the
*We R Visualizers*masterclass. - how to become an R ninja. Take the
*We R Reproducible*,*We R Publishers*, and*We R Programmers*masterclasses to become a Master of Rts.
