Resources for getting started with R

June 18, 2013

(This article was first published on Tatvic Blog » R, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

As we believe you may know, we are having a webinar tomorrow (June 19th, 2013) on Predictive Analytics. During this webinar, you are going to be introduced to R, learn how to build a predictive model and also how to carry insightful analysis through visualization.

As learning a new language can be a really difficult and painful process, we thought that it would be a valuable idea to share useful links for R resources with you. If you can spare some time to read some of these links, we believe that this first briefing will enable you to come with a better background to our webinar.

So, what do you say? Are you in for a reading and for reducing your learning curve?
