Join Barton Poulson for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of Learning R (2013).
Thanks for joining me on Up and Running with R. Before we go, I want to give you…a few tips on directions you can take to better understand R, and how you can use…it in your data analysis.…Now, I've actually saved an R script that has this information in it, just as…text and comments, but let me give you some ideas.…First off, there are additional courses on the Lynda.com Online Training Library…that would be worth investigating.…One, for instance, is Interactive Data Visualization with Processing; a language…that is command line, like R, but developed specifically for creating graphics.…
Another one is SPSS Statistics Essential Training.…SPSS is another very common statistical package.…In that course, which is in greater depth on a lot of the statistical…procedures, can give you information about what the procedures would look like…even when they're conducted in R. Similarly, Lynda.com has a collection of…courses on the use of databases, such as SQL, MySQL, or MongoDB.…In addition, there are a number of books that can be useful.…
The course continues with examples on how to create charts and plots, check statistical assumptions and the reliability of your data, look for data outliers, and use other data analysis tools. Finally, learn how to get charts and tables out of R and share your results with presentations and web pages.
