Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi, everyone. My name is Justin and welcome to my course, working with data types in our I am a MEChA tronics engineer and I'm currently an engineering professor at Sheridan College. Prior to this, I have many years of engineering and consulting experience across the numerous industries. This course is a beginner level course for learning the fundamentals of working with data types in arms. So some prior knowledge of our might be beneficial. Some of the major topics that we will cover include understanding data types and structures in our working with scale, er's and vectors and art, working with factors and lists with an R, working with data frames, matrices and a raise. And finally comparing and contrasting these data types and structures. By the end of this course, you will be proficient in the fundamental techniques required to work with different data types and structures in our from here. Continue your learning by diving into our and data science with courses on our programming fundamentals, data science with our and exploratory data analysis with art. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about to data types and structures with the working with data types in our course at plural site
