R is an integrated suite of software components designed for professional statistical computation, data analysis and data visualization.

R comprises:

1. The R programming language, designed specifically for working with statistical analysis and data analysis;
2. The R environment, designed for effective handling and storage of large data sets; and
3. A massive on-line repository of R packages which cover advanced statistical modeling, machine learning, data visualization and data manipulation tools, as well as packages that support analyses in specific domains such bio-statistics, financial modeling, population studies and computational physics.
This webinar is designed for data scientists and business professional who want to use R in their professional environments and need to learn how to use R effectively in the shortest possible time by developing a solid conceptual understanding of both how R works and how to produce effective results in the most efficient manner.

Four main topic areas covered (briefly are):

1. The R environment. How to customize the R environment and use the various help and assistance tools to support working with R and simplify analysis workflows.
2. Basic R programming. How to write simple, efficient and effective R scripts to automate the data analysis workflow.
3. R Data manipulation. How to use the R data structures, such as data frames, to access, store, arrange and organize data sets.
4. R Data analysis. How to use the core R facilities for statistical analysis and graphics for data visualization.
