R is a software environment for statistical computing, graphics, and data analysis. It has become hugely popular among data scientists due to it's open source nature and its extensibility via packages. In contrast to other popular statistical software, R is a fully fledged high-level programming language. While somewhat taunting for the beginner, the long-term benefits of having a programming language at your disposal when dealing with data are immense. Especially once your datasets outgrow the average Excel spreadsheet.
In this course we will cover the basics of computational data analysis with R. You will learn how to read data into R, perform simple programming tasks, and we will talk about how data is represented in R. We will cover the basics of data munging (the often neglected skill of cleaning, pruning, and generally bending data sets into a shape amenable for further analysis) and data visualisation. A guided tour through a real world analysis, starting from obtaining and cleaning the data, exploratory data analysis, and statistical inference will complete the course.

A prerequisite for this course is an affinity for working with a computer Prior exposure to R is a benefit but not necessary.
