Audience Course R Programming

Course R Programming Big Data analysts and scientists who want to use R for the generation of statistical analyses.

Prerequisites Course R Programming

General knowledge of statistics is required. Programming experience is beneficial for a good understanding.

Realization Training R Programming

The theory is treated on the basis of presentation slides. The concepts are illustrated with demos. R-Studio is used as a development environment. The theory is interspersed with exercises. The course times are from 9.30 to 16.30.

Certification R Programming

The participants will receive an official certificate R Programming after successful completion of the course.

Contents Course R Programming

In this course you will learn how to program in the R language and how to use R for effective data analysis and visualization. R is becoming a standard platform for data analysis and graphics and is able to perform an enormous range of statistical procedures not available in other statistical programs. You will learn how to install and configure R and you will learn the data types of R like vectors, arrays, matrices, lists, data frames and factors. Attention is paid to the use of R library functions and the creation of user defined functions. Control flow in R with the family of apply functions is treated as well. The course then covers statistical analysis models like linear and non-linear models, variable transformations and regressions and reading and manipulation of data in R. Finally attention is paid to R packages and to the use of graphics and plotting in R. Topics in statistical data analysis will provide working examples.
