In many countries across the globe September for students and educators is the time to come back from vacations and start a new academic year. This year we have in plan for all students and R developers a learning experience to boost their academic year beginning.


Every Friday starting September 2, 2022 through September 23, 2022 join us for a new live learning series where you will be guided by subject matter experts through Learn modules around machine learning fundamentals and R programming in real time along with developers around the globe.


This series is based on the Create Machine Learning models with R and Tidymodels learning path and each episode will focus on a module and hands-on demos with a dataset to explore and/or a model to fit using R. Tidymodels is a popular R framework for data scientists including packages for modeling and statistical analysis.
