I completed David Langer's course, R Programming Made Easy.

As a decision support analyst, I have a burning desire to solve more problems and not let the data scientists have all the fun.

My first step on that path is familiarizing myself with one of the primary languages used in data science, R.

Dave's enthusiasm for data digging and problem-solving shine through in the videos.When I ran one section of code and looked at the results, I shouted, 'Whoa!' because of the implications.

So if you want to quickly get up to speed on the basics of R, I recommend Dave's 'R Programming Made Easy'. 

I will definitely be signing up for his future offerings.
