Overview
Learn how to perform data analysis with the R language and software environment, even if you have little or no programming experience. With the tutorials in this class, you’ll learn how to use the essential R tools you need to know to analyze data, including data types and programming concepts. The also shows you real data analysis in action by covering everything from importing data to publishing your results.

Additional content and demonstrations are provided for users of Power BI and Tableau. You will learn how easy it is to incorporate R results into these powerful business intelligence packages.

Audience
This class is for the non-programmer who wants to gain a basic understanding of R. Additional demonstrations will show how R can be integrated with Tableau and Power BI, but the primary focus of the class is for individuals who are using R-regardless of where the results are used.

Prerequisites
No prior programming experience is necessary. Some background in statistics is helpful, but not necessary. No Power BI or Tableau experience is required.

Course Objectives
Write a simple R program, and discover what the language can do
Use data types such as vectors, arrays, lists, data frames, and strings
Execute code conditionally or repeatedly with branches and loops
Apply R add-on packages, and package your own work for others
Learn how to clean data you import from a variety of sources
Understand data through visualization and summary statistics
Use statistical models to pass quantitative judgments about data and make predictions
Learn what to do when things go wrong while writing data analysis code
