This R boot camp will cover the fundamentals of the R language with the goal of getting participants to the level where they can get data into the R environment, conduct an exploratory data analysis in R, build linear models and perform standard machine learning tasks such as clustering and classification analyses.

Technical content covered will include (1) R syntax and language organization, (2) the fundamentals of R data structures and functions (3) data manipulation and visualization, (4) basic statistical models and (5) running machine learning algorithms in R. No prior experience with R is required. However, some experience with another programming language, statistics or machine learning would be helpful.
