# Lab 1 - Meet the toolkit

STA 210 - Spring 2022

## What to expect in lab

• Introduction to the lab assignment (~ 5 - 10 minutes)

• Work on the lab assignment (individual at first, but in teams for the rest of the semester)

• Lab instructions posted on the course website.

• Start each lab by finding your assignment repo in the course GitHub organization

• This is where you will find the Quarto document and data to get started

## Tips

• You do not have to finish the lab in class, they will always be due the following Friday at 5:00 pm. One work strategy is to get through portions that you think will be most challenging (which initially might be the coding component) during lab when a TA can help you on the spot and leave the narrative writing until later.

• When working in teams (later in the semester) do not pressure each other to finish early; use the time wisely to really learn the material and produce a quality report.

## Check: Do you have the lab-1 repo?

• Go to the GitHub course organization: https://github.com/sta210-s22

• You should see a repo with the prefix lab-1- followed by your GitHub username

• If you do not have this repo, please let your TAs know!

## Demo

• Configure Git using SSH

• Clone RStudio repo and start new project

• Render document and produce PDF

• Update name in YAML

• Render, commit, push changes to GitHub

## When you’re done with lab

• Make sure all your final changes have been pushed to your GitHub repo
