R for Data Analysis (In Easy Steps)
Wednesday, 14 November 2018

This book is aimed at anyone who wants to produce graphic visualizations to gain insights from gathered data. Author Mike McGrath begins by explaining core programming principles of the R programming language including the storing of data in vectors from which simple graphs can be plotted. Next he describes how to create matrices to store and manipulate data from which graphs can be plotted to provide better insights and then demonstrates how to create data frames from imported data sets, and how to produce advanced visualizations.
