Congratulations on finishing the course! You're well on your way to success with R.

If you're wondering where to go from here, I have a few suggestions. Obviously, this all depends on your needs, but many people I've worked with need to know more about how to work with factors, dates and times, and strings. I suggest taking a look at the forcats package for factors, lubridate() for dates and times, and stringr() for strings.

There is, of course, so much more that you can do with R. I use it for mapping all the time, for example. To get a sense of what's happening in the big wide world of R, your best bet is to follow the #rstats hashtag on Twitter. You'll hear about new packages, new techniques, and be inspired by all of the creative and interesting ways people use R.

Thanks again for taking the course. If you have any questions as you continue your R journey, please don't hesitate to reach out.
