Four years ago today authors Nina Zumel and John Mount received our author’s copies of Practical Data Science with R!
It has its imitators, but it remains the best “I have R, now what do I do with it?” book (as it works the user through non-trivial projects, analyses, presentations, predictive analytic, data science, and machine learning applications).
All of the code and data used in the book is publicly available here, (including zipped-up examples from the book, and up to date re-runs of those examples). We recently got a few new translation of the book Hangul/Korean to go with the earlier Simplified Chinese. We also have a number of current teaching and training projects extending and using our material (yey!).
