Getting started with R

Hands On Data Science


Are you ready to apply your data science and machine learning skills to read world challenges? 

Are you interested in collaborating and sharing knowledge with similar minded people?

Of course you are!

Hands-on Data Science is a collaborative community in which its members regularly meetup and actively work together on real datasets from companies. The process provides opportunities for members to engage, share knowledge, and learn directly from peers. The forum is open for everybody who is interested in data science regardless of expertise level.

For our warmup intro, Olof Rännbäck Garpinger, will quickly go over one of the most popular data science tools out there called R! It is a free open source language and environment which can be used to import raw data, tidy, transform, visualize, and model. R is highly known for having a wide variety of statistical and graphical techniques and its ease to create well-designed plots.

So, this might be a good opportunity to meet other R enthusiasts and tackle the dataset of the event together.

About the speaker: 

Olof Rännbäck Garpinger has a PhD in Automatic Control from Lund University, and has worked as a consultant since 2009. He has long experience in data analysis using both R and Matlab, and is an avid fan of the Tidyverse.
