Zero to Hero in R

99% of people who quit trying to learn data science give up in the first few hours; the rest give up in the first few weeks. This module, designed for participants who have never used R or any other programming language, will jump-start their data science career by guiding them through a series of firsts: their first line of code, first script, first data table, first plot, and first project. Participants leave with the skills and the orientation they need to not just survive in data science, but thrive.
