This accelerated introduction will help you quickly get up to speed with the R statistical computing language. We will introduce the basics of the R language syntax, data import and management, package installation, and basic programming concepts including functions, classes and methods, iteration, and debugging. No prior R knowledge is required, but previous experience statistical or technical computing (e.g., Matlab, SAS, Stata, Python, and of course R) will be helpful.
