Best Free Training Resources For Learning Python And R For Data Analysis

, , No Comments

I have trained a class of people who paid hundreds of thousands of Naira to learn data analysis with R and I have equally paid a lot in books and online training to horn my R skills. For Python, I haven't yet trained a class on it but I have paid a lot too on books and courses to learn it.

Hands down, the best training resource is hands-on projects. After that, training classes and books rule. And today I will be sharing with you the best free training resources I have personally used. They all deliver better value that some of the resources I paid for.
