Got a good head for numbers? Then R might be the language for you! It’s well-suited for business and statistical analysis, data analytics and scientific research — particularly because it makes it easy for you to visualize the data so that others can easily understand it. It lets you do cool stuff like draw interactive graphs and adjust their parameters along the axes, and create interactive applications.

What you'll learn

Declare and use variables to help your program store data.
Interactive programs
Make interactive programs that output information to the display and take user input.
Data types
Use different data types to manage information effectively.
Conditional logic
Implement conditional logic to set rules in your programs.
Declare and use functions to make your code reusable and compact.
Matrices, vectors and data frames
Handle datasets of different shapes and forms with matrices, vectors and data frames.
Work with external data
Write code that can import, read and group external data.
Graphs and charts
Produce graphs and charts to visualize data.
