With the rise of data science and data analytics over the past decade, the R programming language has become increasingly valuable for organizations. R is an open-source, statistical programming language that allows for users to easily extract, clean, visualize and model data. Whether your goal is to become a data scientist or to move beyond Excel, R is a valuable tool to acquire.
In this course, participants will learn to utilize the R programming language in order to perform data analysis in a work context. They will understand how to perform an exploratory data analysis with a focus on the tidyverse. In addition, participants will gain an understanding of tools that are necessary to perform these analyses in the workplace, including git and R Markdown.
This foundational level course welcomes anyone to enroll, and no prior programming experience is required. It focuses on the mechanics of programming with R and not on statistical modeling techniques.
