Datascience Pirates, can I get an aRRR? There be a new course for yar….

A quick FYI on an interesting Coursera course in case it might pique anyone’s interest. John Hopkins is offering an Introduction to R course – the link is here, it’s free, and it starts tomorrow (5 Jan 2015, but it repeats every month as well).

If you haven’t played with R and work in data-science, it’s definitely worth a look. If you have, it’s great to just reinforce techniques and clear up a few language issues like ‘how the heck do I look up regression again, ?scipy or ?glm or ??omgtoomanyfrigginlanguages’.

I think they are covering plotting as well, so hello GGPlot my nemesis, ya bilge rat of a plotting language!
