Workshop: Introduction to R for data analysis and business analytics


R is one of the most popular and fastest growing languages for statistical analyses and business analytics. Unlike proprietary software such as SPSS, SAS, or MatLab, R is free, open source, and gives you access to the latest statistical techniques from its unparalleled community of developers. For these reasons, R is often the language of choice by researchers and data scientists working in companies such as Google, Apple, and Facebook.
