Course description

Big Data Mini Camp | R Programming Basics for Data Science

R is a functional programming environment for business analysts and data scientists. It's a language that many non-programmers can easily work with, naturally extending a skill set that is common to high-end Excel users. It's the perfect tool for when the analyst has a statistical, numerical, or probabilities-based problem based on real data and they've pushed Excel past its limits.

R Programming for Data Scientists & Analysts is a comprehensive hands-on course that presents common scenarios encountered in analysis and present practical solutions. In this course, special attention is paid to data science theory including AI grouping theory. A discussion of using R with AI libraries like Madlib are included.
