This Specialization is intended for anyone with a passion for learning who is seeking to develop the job-ready skills, tools, and portfolio to have a competitive edge in the job market as an entry-level data scientist. Through these five online courses, you will develop the skills you need to bring together often disparate and disconnected data sources and use the R programming language to transform data into insights that help you and your stakeholders make more informed decisions.
By the end of this Specialization, you will be able to perform basic R programming tasks to complete the data analysis process, including data preparation, statistical analysis, and predictive modeling. You will also be able to create relational databases and query the data using SQL and R and communicate your data findings using data visualization techniques.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
- Perform basic R programming tasks like working with data structures, data manipulation, using APIs, webscraping, and using R Studio and Jupyter.
- Create relational databases and tables, load them with data from CSV files, and query data using SQL and R using JupyterLab.
- Complete the data analysis process, including data preparation,
statistical analysis, and predictive modeling.
- Communicate data analysis findings with data visualization charts, plots, and dashboards using libraries such as ggplot, leaflet and R Shiny.
In this course, you will learn the Grammar of Graphics, a system for describing and building graphs, and how the ggplot2 data visualization package for R applies this concept to basic bar charts, histograms, pie charts, scatter plots, line plots, and box plots. You will also learn how to [...]
In this capstone course, you will apply various data science skills and techniques that you have learned as part of the previous courses in the IBM Data Science with R Specialization or IBM Data Analytics with Excel and R Professional Certificate. For this project, you will assume the role [...]
When working in the data science field you will definitely become acquainted with the R language and the role it plays in data analysis. This course introduces you to the basics of the R language such as data types, techniques for manipulation, and how to implement fundamental programming tasks. [...]
Much of the world's data resides in databases. SQL (or Structured Query Language) is a powerful language which is used for communicating with and extracting data from databases. A working knowledge of databases and SQL is a must if you want to become a data scientist. The purpose of [...]
Welcome to Data Analysis with R. Now that you have a basic understanding of R programming language fundamentals, it is time to put that knowledge to work! The R programming language is purpose-built for data analysis. R is the key that opens the door between the problems that you [...]
