This R training course is an introduction to the R programming language, beginning with the most basic operations of downloading and installing the environment. Participants will learn how to input and manipulate data and be instructed in all the aspects of procedural programming in R, allowing them to create their own R functions and customise code.
The course will also introduce R data structures, statistical operations, the creation of R visualisations, and options for generating output from all of these to external files. It will also provide an overview of the use of packages in R, and an introduction to some of the most common data mining, interactive visualisation and integrated graphical user interface packages.
R is the most popular data mining and statistics package in the world, and it is free to use. It is also easy to use thanks to a range of intuitive graphical user interfaces for statistics, data mining, and interactive visualisation. It is used by a growing number of commercial and government organisations, and is also the tool of choice of elite data mining competition winners.
R is open source, flexible, and customisable. Over 10,000 R packages are available as extensions to the base environment, constituting one of the largest and most up-to-date collections of cutting edge analytics tools in the world. It is also one of the most visually spectacular and universally applicable data visualisation tools.
