This course is a continuation of the RPerl White Belt, and will provide hands-on guidance to lead students through RPerl's scalar data literals & types, scalar operators, constants, basic input & output, conditional statements, and loop control structures. We will implement solutions to the exercises in chapter 2 of the course textbook, Learning RPerl.
REQUIRED SUPPLIES: Course attendees who wish to participate fully must bring their own laptop, preferably running an Ubuntu-compatible operating system; this is optional for those who wish to audit the session only.
PROVIDED SUPPLIES: RPerl itself and digital copies of the Learning RPerl textbook are freely available online. Course participants are encouraged to read the applicable textbook material in advance.
