Introduction to R Programming is an open enrollment, live, interactive online course offered by the non-profit Georgia R School (http://georgia-r-school.org). All of the videos associated with this online R course, as well as dozens of other multi-month R courses (and all scripts, files, slides, exercises and data sets) are all available, on an all-inclusive basis, through May of 2013, to anyone with an inexpensive ($100-$125) R-Courses.org user account with the non-profit Georgia R School (see http://www.georgia-r-school.org/R-Courses.html). Anyone on earth with an Internet connection may participate. A course syllabus is here: http://www.georgia-r-school.org/uploads/INTRO-PROG-GENERAL.pdf. The course runs live on Tuesdays from Oct 9, 2012 through Feb 26, 2013 from 11:30AM-1:00PM ET and utilizes R Project software (http://www.r-project.org) and the RStudio (http://rstudio.org) Integrated Development Environment (IDE). Unlike most application development courses taught in the R environment, this course instructs with respect to “general-purpose” application development, as opposed to strictly statistical-simulation-monte carlo methods-type R applications. The course instructor is a PhD 20-year university professor with 30 years of experience in the software development industry. Course participants receive all live class session recordings, as well as all daily course exercises and solutions, R scripts, data files, documentation, slides and software (is freely available at http://cran.r-project.org and http://rstudio.org). Registration will remain open throughout October at discounted costs here: http://shop.georgia-r-school.org/Introduction-to-R-Programming-Oct-Dec-GRS-PROG-1.htm.
