New Year’s Resolution 2020: Work on more R Data Science Projects

We had such a positive reception to our last Introduction to Data Science promotion, that we are going to try and make the course available to more people by lowering the base-price to $29.99. We are also creating a 1 month promotional price of $20.99. To get a permanent subscription to the course for less than $21 just visit this link https://www.udemy.com/course/introduction-to-data-science/ and use the discount code ITDS21 any time in January of 2020.

Combine this with the new second edition of Practical Data Science with R, and you have a great study set to succeed at substantial statistical modeling and analytics tasks using the R programming language.

Free gradient boosting lecture

We have always regretted that we didn’t get to cover gradient boosting in Practical Data Science with R (Manning 2014). To try make up for that we are sharing (for free) our GBM lecture from our (paid) video course Introduction to Data Science.
