All courses available in-class or via remote login
All classes running remotely, for in-class sessions please call us.Our Data Analytics courses are delivered in our Sydney offices and across NSW, by our experienced Data Analyst.
Fundamentals of R, the first course in our Data Analytics suite focuses on delivering a foundational understanding of R. You will learn how to write basic syntax, understand R data types and objects, use functions and perform basic modelling and prediction. Using R allows you to perform data analysis more efficiently and opens up opportunities to employ the many functions which data scientists have contributed to the R library. You can continue to develop your capability in R with our Beginner, Intermediate and Machine Learning courses.
Meet your Trainer
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, Using R, to provide beginners with the fundamental tools necessary to start using R for data analysis. She is consistently well reviewed by her students.
Why learn R?
Rather than being a point and click tool, R is a language that is used by writing reusable scripts, enabling automation and repeatable workflows. Because it is a language, it offers a huge amount of flexibility in manipulating data and the ability to write new functions. Even without a background in programming, it is relatively easy to get up and running once you know the basics.
Microsoft and R?
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 for R, including the Microsoft Machine Learning Package. Tamara introduces R in Power Bi in this 80min webinar; R Scripts in Power BI.
Our Sydney office is located a short walk from Circular Quay and Wynyard station. There is a public carpark close by: Wilson’s, 6 O’Connell Street.
