Brief course description
The Comprehensive Programming in R Course is actually a combination of two R programming courses that together comprise a gentle, yet thorough introduction to the practice of general-purpose application development in the R environment. The original first course (Sections 1-8) consists of approximately 12 hours of video content and provides extensive example-based instruction on details for programming R data structures. The original second course (Sections 9-14), an additional 12 hours of video content, provides a comprehensive overview on the most important conceptual topics for writing efficient programs to execute in the unique R environment. Participants in this comprehensive course may already be skilled programmers (in other languages) or they may be complete novices to R programming or to programming in general, but their common objective is to write R applications for diverse domains and purposes. No statistical knowledge is necessary. These two courses, combined into one course here on Udemy, together comprise a thorough introduction to using the R environment and language for general-purpose application development.
The Comprehensive Programming in R Course (Sections 1-8) presents an detailed, in-depth overview of the R programming environment and of the nature and programming implications of basic R objects in the form of vectors, matrices, dataframes and lists. The Comprehensive Programming in R Course (Sections 9-14) then applies this understanding of these basic R object structures to instruct with respect to programming the structures; performing mathematical modeling and simulations; the specifics of object-oriented programming in R; input and output; string manipulation; and performance enhancement for computation speed and to optimize computer memory resources.
