A very gentle introduction to programming with R. It starts very easy but covers step by step a wide range of topics. If you want to learn R from scratch and you are a newcomer to programming, then this book is definite for you! PDF, 7.3 MB. 232 pages. …
I endorse very much the pedagogical concept of this book. It teaches you all the knowledge to master the R programming language by way of three practical challenges: Simulating weighted dice, playing cards and a slot machine. These projects are chosen in a way to learn not only to program but also to understand important concepts of data science like sampling without and with replication. You write your first function already in chapter one!
