Advanced R (ADDED FEE) — Professional Development Continuing Education Course
This class will be a good fit for persons who have some experience programming in R already. You should have written a number of functions, and be comfortable with R's basic data structures (vectors, matrices, arrays, lists, and data frames). You will find the course particularly useful if you're an experienced R user looking to take the next step, or if you're moving to R from other programming languages and you want to quickly get up to speed with R's unique features. The course will give you a solid grounding in R programming techniques. We'll start by reinforcing the foundations of your R knowledge, and then go on to cover the three main paradigms of R programming: functional programming, object oriented programming and metaprogramming. Attendees should bring a laptop with the latest version of [R](http://cran.rstudio.com/), a recent version of the [Rstudio IDE](http://rstudio.com/ide/). (Even if you don't use it, you'll want to experience it for package development.) The class is taught by Hadley Wickham, Chief Scientist at Rstudio and an Adjunct Professor of Statistics at Rice University. You may be familiar with his R packages for: Data analysis (ggplot2/ggvis, plyr/dplyr, reshape2/tidyr), Making R less frustrating (lubridate for dates, stringr for strings, httr for accessing web APIs), and Package development (roxygen2, testthat, devtools). Hadley is the author of three books, [ggplot2](http://ggplot2.org/book/), [Advanced R](http://adv-r.had.co.nz) and [R packages](http://r-pkgs.had.co.nz), and frequent speaker at conferences.
Instructor(s): Hadley Wickham, RStudio
