R for Sport Scientists – Fundamentals Course
Learning R language is the best career and the professional development-wise thing I have done in the last 10 years! It afforded me an environment and tool for further development and exploration. Creating graphs was easier. Writing papers, articles, and books was easier. Learning statistics was easier. Simulating and understanding stuff became easier. Learning R was not easy nor short. It is challenging but also fun! You can not develop without leaving your comfort zone, that’s for sure.
So I guess you want to embrace this journey as well. Maybe you haven’t coded in your life and are afraid to take a dip into the R universe. But don’t be scared, young Padawan – as the Chinese saying goes, “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step”. We are here to help.
The R for the Sports Scientists: Fundamentals course is here to help you make the first step into this journey that will definitely pay you dividends down the road. We will take the “harder” road of learning R – NOT as a graphing/statistical script, but as a programming language. This will give you much more clarity and power later on when we will tackle graphics, data wrangling, and statistical analysis in upcoming R courses.
The course starts with an installation lecture, where you will learn how to install R and R studio, followed by the lecture on R objects (mainly the vectors), subsetting the objects (i.e., adding, addressing, and modifying elements, etc.), controlling the flow of the program, and finally writing your functions.
R for the Sports Scientists: Fundamentals course will give you essential knowledge that will allow you to start coding in R and embrace the R journey much more quickly.
Grab a coffee, and let’s do this first step of the thousand miles journey together!
