And, listen up …. the course is free and open to everybody!

If you want to deepen your data analysis knowledge using the most modern R tools, or you want to grasp if R is the right solution for you, this is the right class!

The topics range from the first R session to data manipulation, visualization and discovery, from data import and export to data modelling and mining: a wide overview of R as a data science tool.

In particular, we will cover:

Don’t worry about lunch, it is included. You have only to bring your laptop with the latest version of R and R-Studio.

We apologize to non Italian-speakers but the course will be taught in Italian by Andrea Spanò, who is a Rstudio certificated instructor who has worked as an R trainer and consultant for over 20 years.
