Introduction to R

Introduction to R

This full day session is for people who have no or very limited experience of using ‘R. 

R was conceived in 1992 as a free open-source statistical programming environment, which is now widely used in industry (Google, Microsoft, Airbnb, New York Times, Lloyds of London, etc) and academia, and is now ranked amongst the most popular programming languages. There are huge benefits of R, including cutting-edge visualisation and statistical tools, and a worldwide R community, which freely shares learning and resources. 

This session will help you understand what ‘R’ is and how you could use it within your organisation.  You will get a solid overview but also some hands-on experience of writing some simple code in ‘R’. 

When you have completed this course you will be able to register for the other ‘R’- related courses to develop your skills and enthusiasm further.
