Question from anonymous
Hello, I'm interested in signing up for the Introduction to R class tomorrow, February 14th. I am brand new to coding, and do not have any prior knowledge on the subject. Will I still be able to take this course and benefit from it/understand the concepts being taught? Or is there a more basic introductory course that you would recommend?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
