Learn R for free!

Coursera is offering a series of courses on R designed to get people from n00b to working on their own data analysis and visualization projects. If anyone else wants to take the course(s) as a group, let's meet up at the Empire Hotel's Rooftop Lounge and figure out how this could work!

    Just following up with this for those who couldn't make it last time. We started a Google Group:

      I can't for the life of me find that Google group - are you sure that's the right address?

      Sorry about that, the privacy settings should be relaxed now. Also, I think some of us will be at the "Big Data, Big Change" meetup at Pivotal Labs tomorrow evening at 6:30? http://www.meetup.com...­

    Good morning! Looking forward to seeing people tonight, and apologies to those who can't make it.

    FYI: Coursera has an app now! Looks cool, although iOS-only for now.

    Looks like we also have some other options to consider:

    See you later!

    DEFINITELY want to sign up for R, but I can't make Monday night. :( Can someone please let me know what the verdict is? Thank you all! :)

    The course starts on April 7th. So we are meeting just to formulate a plan? Also, are there any prereqs? I already work in big data space
    (Hadoop ecosystem) and learning R is the next step for me

      Yes, we're meeting up to see what people want from such a group, when/where works for them, and how we might help each other! I think the courses are supposed to be for people who can rock a for loop but haven't used R before, so you should be fine. I'm the opposite, btw, I'm learning R but am looking at Hadoop for the future. Would love to hear about your experience!

      March 10, 2014

    • Mandeep

      Sounds good(ugh...for loops) Would love to make it. Hadoop is quite a journey and not a short one IMO. Happy to answer any Q's u might have.

    I have another meeting but it's cool to take Coursera together. I used R in bioengineering, but mainly Mathematica--one of the few majors who didn't use C and Matlab.
