R Training

GETTING STARTED WITH R TRAINING :

Overview

The Getting Started with R training is designed for both the developers and data scientists. This training will give the attendees a good understanding R language, data exploration and use of machine learning models using R. The training is designed to provide good hands-on experience for all the topics. During the training participants will develop a predictive model using real data. The training is effective for a class size of 10-15 participants.

After the course

Once the course is complete, you will be able to achieve the following:

Pre-requisites

The participants should have the basic knowledge of Windows system as the training may require them to do some basic operations. Participants should also have basic understanding of statistics terminology like mean, standard deviation, correlation etc. Working knowledge in similar tools/packages like Weka, SAS etc. would be an added advantage.

You may also need to bring a Windows Laptop, minimum with the following configuration:
