Welcome to our second session, where we embark on an exciting journey into the world of R programming for data analysis, visualization, and modeling. R is a robust and versatile tool that’s tailor-made for statisticians, data analysts, and data scientists like yourself.

In this recording, we take a deep dive into the capabilities of R, using insurance data as our backdrop. We explore how to analyze this data, create visualizations, and take our first steps into the world of modeling, all leading to the production of insightful reports.

Whether you’re just starting with R or have some prior experience, this second crash course is designed to help you master the fundamentals and unleash the potential of this powerful language.

Feel free to enjoy the recording at your own pace. Pause, rewind, and replay as you delve into the fascinating world of data analysis with R.
