Programming Skills for Data Science (Addison-Wesley)
Monday, 31 December 2018

Subtitled "Start Writing Code to Wrangle, Analyze, and Visualize Data with R", this book brings together all the foundational skills you need to get started working with data, even if you have no programming or data science experience. Michael Freeman and Joel Ross look at the tools you need to solve professional-level data science problems, including R and the Git version-control system. They explain how to wrangle your data into a form where it can be easily used, analyzed, and visualized so others can see the patterns you’ve uncovered.
