Whenever data scientists are asked about what software they use R always comes up at the top of the list. In one recent survey, only SQL was rated higher than R. In this webinar we will explore what makes R so popular and useful. Starting with the big picture, we describe how R is organized and how to find your way around the R world. Then we will work through some examples highlighting features of R that make it attractive for data science work including:

  • Acquiring data
  • Data manipulation
  • Exploratory data analysis
