Tamara Shatar holds a PhD in Agricultural Data Science. She has extensive experience, including many years working as a research scientist focused on data analysis, modelling using machine learning, simulation and other techniques. While working in both academia and at the CSIRO, part of her role included teaching a variety of data analysis skills. Tamara has designed our first Data Analytics Training Course, R Basics, to provide beginners with the fundamental tools necessary to start using R for data analysis. She is consistently well reviewed by her students. 

"Great trainer, structure, material and manual. I have completed programming courses before but this one just made more sense! I'm sure it was the trainer. Looking forward to the Intermediate course." - R Basics Sydney

What is R? 

R is an open source and free programming language that was developed for statistical analysis and production of high-quality graphics. It has long been popular with statisticians and academics who make up part of the large active user community behind R. This community has contributed over 15,000 packages that extend the base functionality of R, making it easy to implement a vast range of techniques for data manipulation, analysis and visualisation.  

Is R compatible with Microsoft?

Microsoft have recognized the power of R and offer not only their own enhanced distribution of R, Microsoft R Open, but the ability to use R within Microsoft products and services such as Power BI, SQL Server / SQL Server Machine Learning Services and Visual Studio. Microsoft have also developed several packages, including the Microsoft Machine Learning Package for R. Check out R scripts in Power BI.

What is Remote Training?

Remote training at Nexacu, means our team of experienced trainers will deliver your training virtually. With remote learning students can access our usual classroom training courses via video conferencing, ask questions, participate in discussion and share their screen with the trainer if they need help at any point in the course. Students have the same level of participation and access to the trainer as they would in classroom training sessions.

Jason is a good instructor. Knows his stuff and goes in depth. I would suggest changing the course content to mention that this course is mostly around coding as it might help the user prepare a bit better... would have helped me :) Also, as I have done all 3 office 365 courses, one thing I have felt was that it could be worth starting the course or even before starting the course, asking the user to give 1 scenario that they face. This would be helpful as a practical application in each class to make it more personal for the user. The instructors did do this to a degree but i think if you specifically got a scenario, it would be even better. Over all i'm happy, there's so flippen much to learn. thanks :) -Office365 Advanced Canberra
