The Consumer Data Research Centre & Leeds Institute for Data Analytics are pleased to offer this short course in R. R is one of the fastest growing programming languages and is the most popular data mining tool in business and academia.
One of the key strengths of R is its great versatility for data manipulation, exploration and testing, not to mention its ability to produce publication ready graphics. Despite this, R’s lack of “point and click” functionality can be intimidating for first time users.
In this course we aim to demystify R by providing you with practical hands-on experience of using R to explore and analyse data. Specifically, you will work with R and its various packages to import, clean, manipulate and visualize real world data. The three hour session assumes no prior experience of R, just a keen willingness to learn!
