About this course

This course is dedicated to programmers who are already familiar with the world of programming and are looking to become acquainted with the R programming language. We designed this course to be a series of short, interactive articles that you can skim, dive into, or even skip. We did this so that you can use this course to both learn R and to check as a reference guide.

Reviews from learners

  • The progress I have made since starting to use codecademy is immense! I can study for short periods or long periods at my own convenience - mostly late in the evenings.

  • I felt like I learned months in a week. I love how Codecademy uses learning by practice and gives great challenges to help the learner to understand a new concept and subject.
