For those who are interested in learning something about R Programming, Coursera is doing a nice neat 1 month course in R Programming starting July 7th.

Link here:

I think it looks pretty interesting. I'm planning on getting my feet wet...


P.S. If you are reading this after July 7th, there are other start dates too.

The Coursera course is great. I took it a while ago.

Another great free resource is the R for Traders course through Loyola which has a lot of nice scripts to experiment with. I'd post a link but I'm too new.

Great course!

Yes, I've done the course. I highly recommend it.

May I add - I've become a great fan of Coursera and have currently adorned my wall with more than 20 verified certificates in varied fields.

The Verified Certificates are amazing value for money (in my personal opinion)!
