R Programming by Example
June 23rd, 2020
"If you know another language (in my case Fortran) and want to quickly get started with R then this is the book for you. The R process for designing and writing programs is quite different for those of us with a more structured compiled language background. This book will quickly make you aware of this and the advantage for doing some quick data analysis." —Bruce Klimpke
"I know programming at an intermediate level, and I've recently started to focus in Data Science. This book was the right one for me! It does a great job at introducing R from a programmer's perspective, not only showing you how to do interesting Data Science projects, but actually explaining the underlying programming concepts which I had not seen well explained in other R books. Thanks!" —John Stewart
"The book is well written and easy to follow. I specially liked the broad range of use cases and the different kinds of applications it reviews: not only statistics but also parallel computing, web applications, software development with object-oriented programming, etc. Overall it is a very good book and I highly recommend it." —Nestor Sánchez
"Explains clearly and concisely many of R's important features with interesting use cases. Highly recommend it." —Anonymous
"Our copy of R Programming By Example just came in and we absolutely can't wait to dig into it! Shout out to its author, Omar. This guy is truly a #DataScience unicorn! He specializes in #Cloud, #RStats, #Python, #AI, #ML and even dabbles in $Crypto!" —Lawrence Mosley
"R Programming by Example is one of the very best texts in the market and a perfect gateway to introduce students to R." —Jibonayan Raychaudhuri

Some people state that Machine Learning is a black-box and that its results can't be trusted because we can't understand them. To some degree they're correct. Although I'd ask, do you really understand how your car works? In this post we go through different ways to make sense out of common Machine Learning models, and how to decrease the lack of understanding for those really complex ones. It's a technical post that references some of our more high-level work on the damage that biased Machine Learning can have.
Companies often want to know how customers perceive their product while they use it and when they post their experiences online. In this course we will build a system using Python that monitors Twitter posts and extracts the sentiments associated with a product through time. By the end of the course you'll be able to use this tool to keep track of how people feel about live events, company products, the latest sport matches, and any other topic people post on Twitter about.
