This class will be an introduction to the statistical programming language R for business analysts. We’ll explore data science use cases in the business realm and use R for data wrangling, data mining, visualization and prediction. Throughout the class we will be approaching business problems analytically and we’ll use R to explore data, make better business decisions and identify areas for improving performance. The combination of data analytics, R and the data science process will provide the foundation for using R for data science business problems. Students should come prepared with an understanding of computer programming and a curiosity for data science.
This is a class for computer-literate people with no programming background who wish to learn basic Python programming. The course is aimed at those who want to learn “data wrangling” – manipulating downloaded files to make them amenable to analysis. We concentrate on language basics such as list and string manipulation, control structures, simple data analysis packages, and introduce modules for downloading data from the web.
