ARU Foundation launches the virtual course: "Introduction to data analysis with R"

Given the current context, where the generation of large volumes of data and its processing with requirements by any organization, adequately mastering quantitative data analysis is a must. In that sense, R is one of the most widely used languages ​​in data analysis, data science and artificial intelligence, among others. Therefore, knowing and mastering it is key to achieving competitive strategies based on data analysis. To do this, the course will provide the foundations of programming in said language with a practical approach from the beginning.


The main objective of the course is that the student knows and is able to write syntax in R language, this implies manipulating data in the appropriate structures, presenting the information visually and programming basic functions.
• Minimum knowledge of descriptive statistics and probabilities.
• Internet access.
• Computer with a minimum of 4GB of RAM.
• Have a web browser installed (Firefox, Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, etc.).
The course is aimed at people who want to get involved in programming in R language, they may have little or no programming knowledge, but have the need to manage databases and present / visualize the results.
Module 1: Introduction to R and data types.
Module 2: Access to portions or subsets of data and control structures.
Module 3: Writing of functions, import and export of databases, statistical models.
Module 4: Data visualization.
COST: Bs 250 for registrations until July 15. Bs 300 for registrations until July 19.
SCHEDULES: Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., via Zoom.
