Getting to Grips with the Tidyverse

Course Level: Foundation

The tidyverse is essential for any data scientist who deals with data on a day-to-day basis. By focusing on small key tasks, the tidyverse suite of packages removes the pain of data manipulation.  The tidyverse allows you to

  • Import data from databases and data sources with ease
  • Remove the pain of data cleaning
  • Start understanding that data by transforming it, visualising it with imagery and modelling it
  • Communicate your findings throughout your organisation securely and simply with apps, documents or plots
  • Make business decisions based on accurate data

This training course covers key aspects of the tidyverse, including dplyr, lubridate, tidyr and tibbles.

Jumping Rivers are one of the few companies worldwide to be RStudio Full Service Partners. We have expertise in all aspects of the tidyverse.
