Trainings. Research. Developments.

Tim-R Programming Consult Nigeria (Tim-R PCN) is a training platform, which is a combination of online and in-person experiences, designed to offer R-computing techniques for finding solutions to statistical and mathematically-inclined problems arising from both real-life and simulated datasets. Quite a number of international non-governmental organizations as well as academic institutions and agencies/ministries of government have partnered with Tim-R on different formidable projects, not far from promoting the use of R language among data scientists.

Approved by the apex Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria under auspices of the Corporate Affairs Commission, Tim-R PCN centers its focus on training & research development, manpower & human capacity development, and monitoring & evaluation using R syntax. It consults for some desired purposes relating to training the young ones how the sophisticated R language could be used to analyze statistical work. We are a group of men and women committed to ensuring that R Software is popularly known, freely distributed, conveniently used, and grossly retained among students of higher institutions, researchers, scholars, and academic (faculty) staff members in Nigeria (and abroad) while dealing with computational statistics.

Tim-R came into existence as a quest for programming knowledge by many undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate students of higher institutions as well as academic researchers and lecturers, who are basically specialists in data science. However, because of its focus on using programming language to solve numerical problems in statistics, mathematics, economics, econometrics, engineering, business, computer science, operations research, to mention but a few, the idea was conceived by its founder, Tim. A. OGUNLEYE, on 14th September, 2017 with a view to helping many knowledge-seekers.

It all started with free weekly online lecture at 21:00 GMT Nigerian time every Sunday via WhatsApp. A group was created on WhatsApp and was named R Statistical Programming (RSP), though was later changed to Tim-R Programming Consult Nigeria. Within the first three months, the group's spaces have been exhausted and new ones were created. Currently, we have about five different groups bearing the same name – Tim-R Programming Consult Nigeria – meant for the same purpose. Later, another social medium, Telegram, was added as means of disseminating R codes to those who are in dare need to handle some of the statistical problems encountered. This platform occupies all our members at a glance. Moreover, in order to spread our wings beyond imagination, we created a Facebook page bearing the same name – Tim-R Programming Consult Nigeria – and a lot of our activities are posted for the interested ones to see.

Currently, apart from this webpage, we have extended means of promotion of R syntax to not less than six social media, where at a specified Nigerian time, classes are held and codes are distributed free of charge – questions are answered as appropriate as possible and knowledge is shared accordingly. We are greatly encouraged with an increasing figure of participants' turnouts towards attending many of our events both online and in-person. Today, Tim-R Programming is having thousands of followers on many social media as we promote the use of R language for data analyses and simulations. We source for funding through grants received from international agencies and organizations. Some time when no fund is received as grant for an event, we levy the participants with a view to covering some expenses on logistics and facilitation.

Trainings

Our training cuts across many disciplines where statistics and data science are most useful. We use R to touch many disciplines such as Computing, Applied Statistics, Economics, Healthcare Services, Medical and Epidemiological Studies, Cartography, Morphometrics, Geostatistics, Industrial Statistics and Quality Control, Engineering, Accounting, Econometrics, Business Intelligence, Machine Learning, Neural Networks, and so on. We conduct both online and in-person human capacity training for organized institutions, companies, agencies of government, individuals, non-governmental organizations – local and international, research bodies, academic associations, etc. We also train young ones on the use of computing techniques to handle projects, dissertations, and thesis.

Research & Development

We handle research problems for organizations and individuals. We conduct both physical and online research into particular problem associated with society. We are open for consultation for different kinds of research such as descriptive & analytical, applied & fundamental, qualitative & quantitative, conceptual & empirical, etc

Data-Simulation & Analytics

In some situations, data sets are not readily available, and also when dealing with research relating to probability distributions most especially the postgraduate students/candidates, we train on how data simulations and analytics are done with R syntax and we provide assistance in form of guidance. At Tim-R, we encourage those who cross our path by giving out the best.

Monitoring & Evaluation

Monitoring is simply the systematic process of collecting and analyzing information to track the efficiency of the organization in achieving its goals. Monitoring provides regular feedback that helps an organization track costs, personnel, implementation time, organizational development and economic and financial results to compare what was planned to the ensuing actual events. In essence, monitoring entails the collection and analysis of information to track what is going on. Evaluation is defined as systematic process of collecting and analyzing information to assess the effectiveness of the organization in achieving its goals. Evaluation provides regular feedback that helps an organization analyze the consequences, outcomes and results of its actions. It helps organization assess their relevance, scope and sustainability. In essence, evaluation entails the collection and analysis of information to assess the impact of a work programme by addressing the question of whether or not the programme made a difference. At Tim-R, we provide in-person training on monitoring and evaluation. We have quite a number of experts on this area to achieve our aim. However, many personnel (staff members) of national and international organizations as well as government agencies have been trained on the use of R dialect to report M&E activities. Finally, the use of R syntax for reporting monitoring and evaluation (M&E) activities is also part of our paramount services we render. We equally conduct training on M&E for individuals and companies.

Data Science with R

One week in-person training workshop on Data Science with R Syntax is coming up between 12th – 16th July, 2021 at the Department of Mathematics, University of Lagos, Nigeria, organized by Tim-R Programming Consult in conjunction with R Consortium and University of Lagos, Nigeria.
