Join Mark Niemann-Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Welcome, part of R for Data Science: Lunchbreak Lessons.
- [Mark] R is one of the top programming languages for data scientists and provides powerful tools for cleaning data and searching for relationships. However, R has some peculiarities that remain unknown, even to experienced R programmers. Hi, my name is Mark Niemann-Ross, and in this series, I'll cover many of the basic concepts about R that you may have skipped over or be puzzled about. Whether you're a rank beginner or a seasoned programmer, you'll find pearls of wisdom throughout this course.
If you find that a video is covering information you already know, feel free to skip on to the next. I've kept each of them brief so you can grab what you need and get back to work. I'm looking forward to sharing my knowledge of R in this series, so let's get started!
The five minutes you spend each week will provide you with a building block you can use in the next two hours at work. Review language basics, discover methods to improve existing R code, explore new and interesting features, and learn about useful development tools and libraries that will make your time programming with R that much more productive.
