About the Course

In this course you will learn how to program in R and how to use R for effective data analysis. You will learn how to install and configure software necessary for a statistical programming environment and describe generic programming language concepts as they are implemented in a high-level statistical language. The course covers practical issues in statistical computing which includes programming in R, reading data into R, accessing R packages, writing R functions, debugging, profiling R code, and organizing and commenting R code. Topics in statistical data analysis will provide working examples....

Really interesting course. The interactive coding sessions with swirl are especially useful. Would be great, if you provided sample solutions for the programming assignments, in particular for week 4.

Very challenging, but good course. I've been programming in R for over a year, but there were still some things for me to pick up in this class. Assignments were a challenge, but satisfying to tackle.

Really useful course. I strongly recommend to spend time on the programming exercises, specially is is long time since your last programming task (e.g. > 10 years)

I had experience with R in a class at my university, and I learned a lot in this course that my class didn't cover. The assignments were more challenging as well.

It was a great course for understanding and using R for basic package. I would like to thank builders of swirl package for such and awesome module for teaching R.

The lectures, swirl modules, and assignments had very high synergy for a multi-faceted learning experience. The pinned posts in the forums were extremely helpful.

The level increases very very fast. For people starting from scratch (as me) will take the to complete the assignments. Challenging, but overall of great quality!

Very good course. It helped to understand the basics and good practice, and helped me in doing research experiments in R using UCI dataset for my research paper.

Exellent for beginner.

I literally didn't know anything about R, and was not familiar with programming.

This course gave me a step for advanced data programming.

This was a very challenging class for someone who had no prior programming experience. However, with enough time and effort, I was able to succeed in the course.

Very hard course but very useful, I think, lecture videos totally disconnected from the assignments. One will have to dig deep to understand the basic concepts.

Great course to get to know inside and out R programming and not just for quantitative analysis (for me) but also getting to know how R used across other users.

Excellent basic course, although I understand that people with no previous programming experience might struggle with it (and even some old programmers like me)

It's great to learn it from here. However, for beginner like me, it was a pretty complicated while doing the assignments. But, thanks anyways for the teachings.

Thank you very much for everything you learned.

It is these difficult times of the Pandemic. Thank you very much for your generosity in sharing your knowledge.

Assessments always seem a bit more challenging than initially expected and the learning continues. Assessments are not of the 'check the box' type. Well done.

Everything was perfect, a good start to get to know about programming and data science. By the way, the assignments are a bit too hard for beginners like me.

Solid introduction to R Programming. Assignments took many hours to complete but in the end it was all worth it. Looking forward to Getting and Cleaning Data.

Excellent class with the right level of difficulty and some challenging assignments. I like that it's only 4 weeks long and gives an overview of the language.

This course so was amazing, it opens new orders, but the most important thing is to apply and play around swirl programming which fun and friendly practices.

The course is too good. Beyond my expectations. It includes more like hand on training that I have never seen before. I suggest everyone to take this course.
