R for Analytics—Basics
Associate Enterprise Data Analyst (AEDA)
R for Analytics – Advanced is one of the modules under our Associate Enterprise Data Analyst (AEDA) programme. AEDA is a 15-day training program that provides analysts with the tools required for efficient Data Analysis.
Details of Subject
- Advanced Data Preparation (11.0 hrs) – Participants will become familiar with tools for data preparation from the tidyverse set of packages, including tools for importing data, data wrangling, data tidying, string manipulation and date/time operations. Participants will be able to use a wider array of functions to prepare data into a format amenable to data analysis in R.
- Reporting in R Markdown (3.0 hrs) – Participants will be introduced to the R Markdown document format, the backbone for an ecosystem for document authoring, which allows for the creation of reproducible data analysis reports in PDF, HTML and Word formats, as well as (time permitting) HTML5 slides. Participants will be acquainted with a time-saving data analysis workflow that allows analysts to easily create reproducible and convenient data analysis reports in formats that stakeholders are familiar with.
- SQL with R / RSQLite (2.0 hrs) – Participants will learn to set up SQL connections, queries, and write data frames to tables from R. Participants will be able to interact with large datasets stored in SQL databases directly in R, allowing for quicker data analysis while using less resources relative to reading data all at once.
- R Shiny (5.0 hrs) – Participants will learn to work with the components of R Shiny, a package for creating web applications in R. Participants will be able to create and publish interactive dashboards to present data for stakeholders.
