Does data analysis feel like the impossible job of “catching the moon?”
Fortunately R and RStudio are great tools to analyze data and illustrate conclusions, while at the same time keeping records and create “live” documents that can be updated with “just one click.”
The material is written in a way that is conducive to “learn by doing” following demonstrations and examples. All code and all necessary materials and files are available and therefore it is possible to learn and acquire proficiency on one’s own with this course content.
