R Coding for Data Science - 2020/21
1 Welcome! :)
You are reading the lecture notes of the R lectures for the Coding for Data Science (C4DS) course at University of Bergamo (academic year 2020/21). R is a great programming language especially designed for statistical analysis and data visualisation.
The C4DS R lectures are designed for students who already have a programming background thanks to the first part of the C4DS course dedicated to Python. In the 5 lectures dedicated to R I will present you the basics of R for data manipulation, analysis and plotting.
Enjoy the journey!
