RStudio has teamed up with Datacamp to create a new, interactive way to learn dplyr. Dplyr is an R package that provides a fast, intuitive way to transform data sets with R. It introduces five functions, optimized in C++, that can handle ~90% of data manipulation tasks. These functions are lightning fast, which lets you accomplish more things—with more data—than you could otherwise. They are also designed to be intuitive and easy to learn, which makes R more user friendly. But this is just the beginning. Dplyr also automates groupwise operations in R, provides a standard syntax for accessing and manipulating database data with R, and much more.
In the course, you will learn how to use dplyr to
filter()observations from your data in a targeted way
arrange()observations within your data set by value
- derive new variables from your data with
- create summary statistics with
