Join this 3-day intensive R for Data Science training course to gain the skills you need to get started with data science, including statistical and numerical methods and R. Data Science is less a single topic and more a multi-disciplinary way of thinking, inquiring and communicating. Individuals do not need to know everything about the field, but teams should be composed of individuals who collectively do.
Join Brian Sletten, consultant and speaker in disruptive technologies, as he dives into visualising data and big data environments and how to interact with linked data in R. Upon completion of this Data Science workshop, you will have an understanding of relevant languages, tools and best practices as they relate to R for Data Science.
