R is rapidly becoming the leading language in data science and statistics. Today, the R programming language is the tool of choice for data scientists in every industry and field. Whether you are a full-time number cruncher, or just the occasional data analyst, R will suit your needs.
This introduction to R programming course will help you master the basics of R. In seven sections, you will cover its basic syntax, making you ready to undertake your own first data analysis using R.
Starting from variables and basic operations, you will learn how to handle data structures such as vectors, matrices, data frames and lists. In the final section, you will dive deeper into the graphical capabilities of R, and create your own stunning data visualizations. No prior knowledge in programming or data science is required.
What makes this R programming course unique is that you will continuously practice your newly acquired skills through interactive in-browser coding challenges using the DataCamp platform.
Instead of passively watching videos, you will solve real data problems while receiving instant and personalized feedback that guides you to the correct solution.
What you'll learn:
"It is the best course for non-programmers who are wishing to start their Data Science carrier using R Programming language as a tool." - Dmitriy Prokopyev, edX student
"Finally a great introduction to R course! Good for both beginners and intermediate level looking for a refresher on R. Very clear instruction and I loved how we used what we learned in "mini projects" to reinforce our learning." - Braden Jones, edX student
"Very good introduction to the R language. I like the labs and console for testing and improving skills. Multiple short videos in each lecture were a good idea." - Jan Polzer, edX student
