Would you like to learn to use R to develop dashboards like these?

If yes, this is the right course for you. If you already have some knowledge of R, it is an advantage. However, you are welcome to join without any prior knowledge, basics of R will be covered during the first session and with some additional homework, you should be able to catch up.
