Chapter 1 Getting Started with Data in R
Before we can start exploring data in R, there are some key concepts to understand first:
- What are R and RStudio?
- How do I code in R?
- What are R packages?
We’ll introduce these concepts in the upcoming Sections 1.1-1.3. If you are already somewhat familiar with these concepts, feel free to skip to Section 1.4 where we’ll introduce our first dataset: all domestic flights departing one of the three main New York City (NYC) airports in 2013. This is a dataset we will explore in depth for much of the rest of this book.
