Ever wonder if tackling R is a good idea?

It has a lot of advantages, but a few challenges as well.

A long-time SAS and SPSS user, instructor Kim Love took up R a few years ago, and has since run with it.

In this webinar, Kim will lay it all out for you: the good, the bad, and the useful resources of R.

Covered in this webinar:


  1. What is the R Project, CRAN, and RStudio. Where did it all come from and why is it set up the way it is?
  2. An overview of the most popular R interfaces–R Studio–and some of its helpful features.
  3. How to download packages and load them in their sessions.
  4. How to update R and RStudio on a regular basis
  5. An introduction to a point-and-click interface that writes the code for you. This is a great way to get started or to pick up R after a hiatus: R commander.
