R Programming Made Easy Live

Virtual live training designed for ANY professional


Learn R. Unlock advanced analytics. Be a part of the data-driven future.


September 26th, 27th, and 28th.

3:00 PM to 6:00 PM Eastern Time each day.

Live Training the Dave on Data Way.

I've designed this live course to give you the most valuable R programming skills, fast. Like Microsoft Excel, R is a large and powerful ecosystem for working with data. Just like Excel, you don't need all the R bells and whistles to effectively work with data. Here's what's included in the live course:


Small class size. This live training is limited to a maximum of 20 students.

9 hours of virtual live instruction. Using your Excel skills, you will quickly learn the basics of working with data in R. Then you will learn how to efficiently work with multiple tables of data (e.g., joining tables). Lastly, you will learn how to explore/analyze data using powerful data visualizations.

Hands-on labs. You learn R programming by writing code. The course includes hands-on labs for you to practice your skills.

1-on-1 help if you need it. You will tackle the hands-on labs during class. I will be available to provide you help 1-on-1 if you need it via Zoom breakout rooms.

PDFs of all slides/labs and downloadable labs files (e.g., R code). You will tackle the hands-on labs during class. I will be available to provide you help 1-on-1 if you need via Zoom breakout rooms.


Certificate of completion. Attend all 3 days and receive a Dave on Data certificate of completion.

Preparation for machine learning. This course provides all the R programming knowledge you need for my Introduction to Machine Learning With R course.

πŸ‘‰ A special gift. πŸ‘ˆ If you register by August 31st, you will receive lifetime access to my "R Programming Made Easy" online course as an early bird bonus - a $249 value.

Skeptical? Check this out!


The video πŸ‘‡ shows how your knowledge of Excel tables maps to R data frames.

In case you're curious, it's a lesson from the self-paced online version of this live course and exemplifies how I successfully teach R programming to ANY professional.

The Future of Business Will Be Data-Driven.


Is data reshaping your profession?

While data has always been used in business, things have changed. Functions like HR, Product Management, Customer Service, etc. are embracing advanced analytics to drive better business outcomes.


Do you want to be a part of this data-driven future?


It’s hard to avoid all the social media posts, magazine articles, and news clips trumpeting how advanced analytics are permanently changing the way organizations operate – and changing the expectations of employers.


Will your lack of programming skills hold you back?


While you might not think of it this way, Excel users write code every day. Make no mistake, this is Excel programming code:

πŸ‘‰ =AVERAGE(table_name[column_name])


Learning R programming is easy!


Your skills with Excel 100% map to R. If you use Excel functions like AVERAGE and IF, you can code in R. This is the R equivalent of the Excel code above:

πŸ‘‰ mean(table_name$column_name)

Look very similar, no?


Unlock advanced analytics

ο»ΏR programming removes many of the constraints enforced by Microsoft Excel (e.g., working with large data sets). R skills also unlock advanced analytics like machine learning.

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

"After completing several Dave on Data classes, I share with you this short review.

Dave is a storyteller, his instructions and explanations are very clear, so important when it comes to teaching data analytics. Dave makes excellent use of analogy methods to illustrate lessons purpose and compare concepts present in the study cases.

Dave is available in case of questions, and Dave's answers will encourage you to push another door and keep on learning & practising.

As a student, I became more confident using R code. My skills improved, although I am not a Senior Programer or Business Intelligence Analyst."
