When you think about what data analysts and data scientists do on a day-to-day basis, you might have a general understanding of types of conclusions they make, but how do they arrive at those conclusions? The statistical programming language R is widely used in data science; understanding the basics of how it works can help you manipulate and visualize data in a quick, flexible manner, and it may improve your communication with data scientists on your team.
In this course, you will explore the basics of statistical programming and develop R skills. As you hone your ability to use commands in R, you will combine those basic skills to complete more complex tasks, such as data manipulation and visualization. Finally, you will examine how to repeat tasks in R, which makes it easier to manipulate large data sets. This course involves many hands-on coding exercises to help you gain confidence in your newfound programming skills.
