All in all, this course will provide students with a strong background in R programming which will be beneficial when:
(a) taking academic modules that use R to illustrate practical applications
(b) embarking on a data analysis career.
Objectives: At the end of this course, students should have a broad understanding of the R language, and the ability to write concise code that can be used across many areas of data analysis. Specifically, students ought to be familiar with:
(a) R data types and the best way to perform operation on them
(b) functional programming and its role in data analysis and processing
(c) basic algorithm design.
