Event Details

An Introduction to R for SAS Users

4 sessions of 4 hours each

Tue. 6/10/14 through Fri. 6/13/14

8 AM - 12 Noon (EST)

1 PM - 5 PM (GMT)



Many R users are new to R, but not new to analytic programming. Experienced SAS users will find that R has some similarities with SAS, but is very different in many ways and requires a different mindset to master. Once the basic differences are understood, however, SAS users will find the power and flexibility of R’s object oriented framework readily apparent. This course provides a foundation for programming in R specifically for those familiar with SAS. Knowledge of SAS and basic data analysis concepts are assumed.



4 half days of 4 hour each, totaling 2 days.

Must attend 4 of 4 parts for course completion.
