Google Developers R Programming Video Lectures

Google Developers recognized that most developers learn R in bits and pieces, which can leave significant knowledge gaps. To help fill these gaps, they created a series of introductory R programming videos. These videos provide a solid foundation for programming tools, data manipulation, and functions in the R language and software. The series of short videos is organized into four subsections: intro to R, loading data and more data formats, data processing and writing functions. Start watching the YouTube playlist here, or watch an individual lecture below:

1.1 - Initial Setup and Navigation
1.2 - Calculations and Variables
1.3 - Create and Work With Vectors
1.4 - Character and Boolean Vectors
1.5 - Vector Arithmetic
1.6 - Building and Subsetting Matrices
1.7 - Section 1 Review and Help Files
2.1 - Loading Data and Working With Data Frames
2.2 - Loading Data, Object Summaries, and Dates
2.3 - if() Statements, Logical Operators, and the which() Function
2.4 - for() Loops and Handling Missing Observations
2.5 - Lists
3.1 - Managing the Workspace and Variable Casting
3.2 - The apply() Family of Functions
3.3 - Access or Create Columns in Data Frames, or Simplify a Data Frame using aggregate()
4.1 - Basic Structure of a Function
4.2 - Returning a List and Providing Default Arguments
4.3 - Add a Warning or Stop the Function Execution
4.4 - Passing Additional Arguments Using an Ellipsis
4.5 - Make a Returned Result Invisible and Build Recursive Functions
4.6 - Custom Functions With apply()

  1. Thanks for sharing. The nice topics that most programmers don't learn.., seems more suitable for experienced and advanced learners. Here is a great tutorial that I think will benefit beginners:
