R is a widely used programming language for statistical computing. In this
course, Creating Nested and Special-purpose Functions in R, you will learn foundational knowledge of creating your own custom special purpose functions within R. First, you will learn the basics
of using and creating simple functions. Next, you will learn about function
scoping and nested functions within R. Finally, you will learn about
replacement and anonymous functions within R and how to implement them. When you are finished with this course, you will have an understanding of the fundamentals of R.

Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Justin, and welcome to my course, Creating Nested and Special‑Purpose Functions in R. I am a mechatronics engineer, and I'm currently an engineering professor at Sheridan College. Prior to this, I have many years of engineering and consulting experience across numerous industries. This course is an advanced‑level course for learning some special‑purpose functions with R, so some prior knowledge of R might be beneficial. Some of the major topics that we will cover include an introduction to functions within R, function scoping and creating nested functions, and creating special‑purpose functions within R. By the end of this course, you will be proficient in the fundamental techniques required to create your very own custom functions with R. From here, continue your learning by diving into R and data science with courses on R Programming Fundamentals, Data Science with R, and Exploratory Data Analysis with R. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn custom special‑purpose functions with the Creating Nested and Special‑Purpose Functions in R course, at Pluralsight.
