Event Description

Getting Started with R and Data Analysis



Are you tasked with analysing data, or are you about to be? Have you been using proprietary data analysis tools and would like to explore open source? If so, you are in for a treat as we introduce you to the most popular and rapidly growing open source statistical package R.

In this course you will learn how to use R for effective data analysis, how to install and configure software necessary for a statistical programming environment, learn and practice R programming language concepts, common and useful R commands. You will learn to use R for reading data, writing functions, making informative graphs, and applying basic statistical methods. Course is designed for people who are just starting with R as well as for data analysts who are switching to R from other statistical software, such as SAS or SPSS.
