R Courses

R is a (free) open source programming language and software environment for statistical computing and graphics. It is used by many different companies, including: Google, Facebook, Bank of America and many firms involved in Biomedical research.

The courses are at held at Newcastle University, UK. The aim of these courses isn’t to teach statistics, rather to introduce fundamental concepts of programming with R.

Dr Colin Gillespie is a statistics lecturer at Newcastle University. He has been using R since 1999 and teaching R programming for the last eight years. Colin has authored a number of R packages and regularly answers R questions on stackoverflow.
