When I was learning to use R, I remember a time when I tried to make a graph and was totally stumped. I read tutorial after tutorial but none of them explained how to work with my data. And then I came across the solution: my data wasn’t tidy.
I came across this solution almost by accident. I learned R on my own, and without a more experienced guide, I didn’t know what I didn’t know.
You get messy data and don’t know how to deal with it
You want to produce presentations from RMarkdown documents, not just reports
These are just a few of the questions that Going Deeper with R is designed to answer. The course will give you the skills to not just replace your current tools, but go well beyond their capabilities. Watch your skills go from competent to excellent, your efficiency go from passable to unstoppable, and your relationship with R go from fascination to infatuation.
What will you learn in this course?
This course will build on the Fundamentals of R course by going deeper on each the same three topics: data wrangling and analysis, data visualization, and RMarkdown. You’ll learn to get your data into the shape you need, visualize it beautifully, and present it in reports, presentations, dashboards, and more. s
Hi, I’m David.
Think you know what an R user looks like? I’m probably not what you have in mind.
I started R for the Rest of Us to be that guide. Yes, you can learn R on your own. But working with me will help you go from novice to expert much, much faster than you could on your own.
I’m not a hardcore quant (my PhD is in anthropology). I’m not a coder ready to jump on you for any small mistake.
I want to help others avoid the pain that I went through learning R.
A teacher at heart (shoutout to my former second grade students), I make R less scary and more fun (yes, fun).
