The Scottish Digital Academy is working in partnership with This is Milk to deliver this course.  

This six week course will introduce you to R and RStudio.  The course is split in to 12 sessions over a 6 week period with self led training in between each session.

What are the benefits?

By attending this course, you will learn how to create powerful data visualisations using R and RStudio.

You will practice creating RStudio projects and writing and running your own R scripts.  You will get hands-on experience creating visualisations like scatter plots, boxplots, histograms, time series plots, static and interactive maps.  You will also get the opportunity to start applying what you have learned to your own work or interests.

The first half of the course will involve working with datasets and problems provided by the instructor.  For the second half of the course, you will be working with your own datasets and self-defined problems (e.g. something you’re interested in for your day-to-day work).
