Coursera is offering a four week online class introducing the R programming
language, running August 3rd through the 29th. R is typically used for
statistical analysis and graphing. You should have some basic programming
knowledge and some familiarity with statistics. Here's their blurb about
the class, from https://www.coursera.org/course/rprog:
> In this course you will learn how to program in R and how to
> use R for effective data analysis. You will learn how to install
> and configure software necessary for a statistical programming
> environment and describe generic programming language concepts
> as they are implemented in a high-level statistical language.
> The course covers practical issues in statistical computing
> which includes programming in R, reading data into R, accessing
> R packages, writing R functions, debugging, profiling R code,
> and organizing and commenting R code. Topics in statistical
> data analysis will provide working examples.
Let's form a study/discussion group! I think quorum would be at least four
people, including myself. We'll pick a day of the week to meet for the
four weeks the class is running. Please commit to coming to those four
sessions once we pick a day that works for everyone.
