12 Continued Learning

Now that you’ve learned about reproducible data analysis in R, you’ll want a list of references to look back on, some tips about where to find help, and some pointers on how to further develop your R skills. One of the great things about open source tools like R, is the abundance of free resources available to help you teach yourself.

12.1 References

  • The materials from this course
  • RStudio built in documentation (help tab, .etc)
  • git-scm.com tutorials and documentation
  • cheat-sheets (RStudio -> Help -> Cheatsheets)
