In this handy, practical book you will cover each concept concisely, with many illustrative examples. You’ll be introduced to several R data science packages, with examples of how to use each of them.
In this book, you’ll learn about the following APIs and packages that deal specifically with data science applications: readr, dibble, forecasts, lubridate, stringr, tidyr, magnittr, dplyr, purrr, ggplot2, modelr, and more.
After using this handy quick reference guide, you’ll have the code, APIs, and insights to write data science-based applications in the R programming language. You’ll also be able to carry out data analysis.
What You Will Learn

  • Import data with readr
  • Work with categories using forcats, time and dates with lubridate, and strings with stringr
  • Format data using tidyr and then transform that data using magrittr and dplyr
  • Write functions with R for data science, data mining, and analytics-based applications
  • Visualize data with ggplot2 and fit data to models using modelr
