Data analytics with R

Description

In an increasingly data-driven world, data analysis is becoming one of the hottest tech skills to have that will get you hired.

R is a widely used programming language amongst statisticians and data miners and regarded as one of the first data science programming language to learn.

Register for our Data Analytics with R and master the basics of R and be able to conduct data analysis project yourself within 5 sessions.


Through this course, you will:

- Learn basics syntax, most popular functions/libraries in R programming

- how to perform data analysis with R

- create your own visualisation and presentations with R


The track will culminate with a final project where all participants will apply what they have learnt and present their findings in the final 5th session of the Data Analytics with R. Outstanding presentations will be published on CodingGirls official website, slideshare platforms and promoted through various social media channels.


*This course is suitable for beginners. No programming background is required.
