Getting to Grips with the Tidyverse

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, tidy, transform, manipulate and visualise data. This course covers key tidyverse areas, such as {dplyr}, {lubridate}, {tidyr} and tibbles.

Prior Knowledge

This course assumes familiarity with the concepts taught in our Introduction to R course. In particular, we build on the underlying {tidyverse} theory by introducing new {tidyverse} packages. If you have limited or no experience in R, we would advise you to complete our Introduction to R course, before attending.
