In each of the courses, learners will deploy their newly acquired advanced R language skills to manipulate complex datasets, write powerful functions, create a new R package, and develop new visualization tools for building custom data graphics. These projects will result in a portfolio of R code that can be reused and built upon for deployment in the real world.
Build the Tools for Better Data Science
Learn to design software for data tooling, distribute R packages, and build custom visualizations
