There is no shortage of data being collected by services and organisations. Someone needs to organise or "wrangle" this data for businesses to make data-driven decisions to improve the customer experience. R, an open-source, dedicated statistical language will help you wrangle data into meaningful formats for analysis and insight, irrespective of your industry and background. This workshop will demonstrate common data wrangling steps to transform data to tidy cleansed formats for analysis, visualisation and business intelligence.

If you want to level-up your analysis skills and learn a new way to process, analyse and visualise data, join us in this introductory class and learn the fundamentals of wrangling data with R.
