R

Steph Locke has a new book out:

Data Manipulation in R is the second book in my R Fundamentals series that takes folks from no programming knowledge through to an experienced R user. Working with Rfocussed on the very basics and this second book covers data wrangling.

Introducing the core skill of working with tabular data, this book goes from importing data, to analysing it, and then getting it back out for consumption elsewhere. Leaning heavily on the tidyverse, I think it’s an accessible introduction for those new to analysing data.

The book is free if you have Kindle Unlimited; otherwise, it’s not expensive at all.
