Data Science with R - Virtual

This GoDataDriven training offers a 2-day introduction to R. Do you want to learn how to use R (in RStudio) for data analytics and visualization? Join us. No previous experience with R required!

A hands-on introduction to R!

Are you looking for an open-source tool that is known for easy navigation, manipulation, interaction, and scriptwriting? This is your chance to experience R (in RStudio) with an experienced trainer to guide you. Tried and true in the statistical community, R is an excellent tool for data analysis and visualization that makes scaling from programs like Excel a piece of cake. 

“The training really starts from scratch, which is great for beginners. It covers a wide range of topics in R, and ends with a fascinating section on modeling.” –Data Scientist & Cognitive Neuroscientist, Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience

This training is perfect for

Anyone interested in doing data analysis in a more automated and scalable way. This course will teach you the fundamentals of data analysis and data science, making it a great starting point for a career in this field. This is a Foundation level course that does not require any previous experience with R. However, a basic understanding of data analysis and visualization concepts is helpful.

What will you learn during Data Science with R?

After this course, you will be able to work with R and its main packages, such as Dpylr for data preparation, GGplot2 for data visualization, and Shiny for interactive dashboarding. You will be able to use your own data sets, perform analysis, and present the outcomes to your colleagues, concisely, and convincingly.


The program consists of eight blocks; each block consists of both theory and a hands-on lab:

Day 1:

  • Introduction to R
  • The workflow in Rstudio
  • Visualization using GGplot 2
  • Dashboarding in Shiny

Day 2:

  • Concept of a DataFrame  
  • DataFrame operations using Dplyr and Tidyr
  • Basic Machine Learning models
  • Functional programming using Purr

You will learn:

  • How to generate Rscripts in Rstudio
  • How to automate reporting with RMarkdown in Rstudio
  • Types and vectors in the R language
  • Functional programming style and pipe-then operators
  • How to wrangle data with Dplyr
  • How to structure data with Tidyr
  • The grammar of visualization with GGplot2
  • How to do data analysis, the right way
  • How to interpret linear models
  • How to use external packages
