Data Science Workshop Series (For Beginners)
After an amazing first event late last year, we are back with our second meetup discussing Data Science topics for beginners. If this is the first time attending, don’t worry, there is no pre-requisite!
R is a free, open-source programming language that has gained a lot of traction in recent years among statisticians, researchers, and data scientists alike. But what does a data scientist do and how can R be used as a tool in data science?
In this hands-on meetup, we discuss R fundamentals using the free Data Scientist’s Workbench (datascientistworkbench.com). Bring your laptop to this hands-on session!
