Great online courses for learning R

The last few months have seen a flurry of activity in terms of new courses being created for the R programming language.

Udemyis one such online venue that provides a surprisingly broad array of topics related to the R language. These topics include statistical analysis, regression, data science, machine learning, quantitative trading, data visualization and more.

As an adjunct instructor in the quantitative finance field, I find it hard to cover all the important/basic concepts prior to moving on to the more interesting/advanced uses of the R programming language.

The following courses provide a nice introduction to some of the basic and even intermediate principles that I deem important.

The basics R courses:

These courses talk about the basic programming constructs of R and also introduce some
topics in the field of data science.
