If you want to learn a simple way to analyze data with the R programming language, without all the "hard" work that too many people associate with learning R, then this is the course you want! Here's why.
But First, a Warning...
Before we go further, let me make something abundantly clear. This is not a course that will make you an "instant" expert in R. This is also not a course that promises you that you will learn everything R in 2 hours, just by watching the videos.
And I am not suggesting that everyone (or anyone) who watches this course will like it (maybe because of my French accent). In fact, if you don't apply what you learn in this course and do the practice activities (there are 6 of them and 3 Capstone assigments), it's more than likely that you will not learn anything to analyze your data in RStudio.
with that said, let me jump right in and show you...
Exactly What You're Getting
First of all, there isn't any fluff or filler, no powerpoint to fill up time. This is also not an 8 or 10 hour video course like I see sometimes, because if you're like me, you don't have 10 hours sitting to watch programming videos to get your job done. You want something that goes right to the point. That's what I am giving you..
... and it is easy to follow. 1 hour 54 minutes of video and you'll immediately "get" the system I use to start analyzing data in RStudio.
I hear lots of people say R is a complicated language. I disagree. What used to be a steep learning curve has been made a lot simpler and more efficient with RStudio and the Tidyverse. In this Getting Started with RStudio course, you will learn everything you need to know to get started with RStudio IDE, and to clean, transform and load data with RStudio.
Say goodbye to the frustrating "steep" R learning curve
Say goodbye to complicated native base R commands

oh, and in case you're wondering...
THERE 'S NO CATCH!
I realize that there are video courses on R in the Udemy platform that promise you to be an expert or "master" R. I also know some of these courses have 6 or 8 hours of video content, and they're priced the same, or even cheaper. So, the logical question is: "why buy this course?"
The reason is simple, in my 1h 54m of video content, I show you what works now and if you're a seasoned or aspiring data analyst who want to use RStudio and R to analyze data, you don't want to go through 8 hours of content to find the commmands you need. You want the essentials, and some more, to get the job done. Because that's what it is about. Getting started with RStudio and get the job done to load, clean and transform your data to start analyze it in the most efficient way possible.
Anyway, with all that said, this is a limited offer at that price. I'm constantly testing the data and I might decide to increase the price. I really don't know at that point.

Who this course is for:
- Beginner R developers curious about using RStudio and R for data analysis
I am really excited to help the data analyst community on Udemy. Whether you're a seasoned data analyst or aspiring to be, I hope you get what your heart desire, maybe a better lifestyle, or salary, or even learn new skills for fun! I hope to be one of your instructor in your journey.
As a data scientist and biostatistics instructor I have been involved in research studies and projects such as: 1) dashboard creation and publishing (using RStudio, Tableau, PowerBI). 2) statistical analyses and reports (regressions, anovas, chi-square, factor analyses), 3) data warehouse and pipelines development with R and SQL Server. I also build Excel VBA applications to automate reports and save time from tedious reporting repetitive tasks.
I have, or will have video tutorials in R, Python, SQL, PowerBI and Excel VBA on Udemy. I hope to be one of your instructor in your data analyst journey. Salut!
