An All-Encompassing Advanced R Course
Enroll now to learn a massive amount of content, starting with how to load data locally, and other techniques.
You will spend so much time getting your data ready in R as you go through your life and career in data science that you need a good understanding of it. You will get a complete understanding thanks to this course with Magnum Dampier of Mammoth Interactive.
This course was funded by a #1 Kickstarter project from Mammoth Interactive
We cover data cleaning techniques, how to handle outliers, scaling data and why we scale it, and other important examples. You will learn to load and handle data in R, and much more.
Learn A Wide Platter Of Topics
We cover numerous examples including decision trees, random forest, testing, SVMs with tuning, and LDA.
Converting Types and Solving Problems
You will learn to convert your data types to fit the needs of different models for training and testing. You will learn to build functions to save time typing code, making you an efficient data scientist. Learn to handle errors and problem solve the smart way.
Advanced Functions and Abstraction
You will learn to build advanced functions in R around training and testing. You will be a functions expert and understand abstraction.
Regression, Shrinkage, and Correlation
You will learn regression models including linear regression and quickly move into multiple linear regression, shrinkage methods like ridge and lasso. You will learn when to use and when not to use correlation with model inputs.

Hello all! My name is Magnum Dampier, and I am honored to have the privilege of guiding you through data science and advanced R techniques. I would like to take a minute and give you a little bit of background about me, and how I became hooked on R. My love for R began out of complete necessity, when other languages and methods just wouldn’t work for the type of outcome I was needing.
Through the years of challenging work (mainly on the part of others), R has become a top contender for data science types alike, myself included. I spent over 10 years in a fortune 300 company, dealing with information systems, pricing, and inventory control. I’ve sat on the board of a point of sale development company, volunteer as a computer science teacher locally (teaching Python and Java, I will convince them to go to R soon enough!), and currently serve as a Director of Information Systems in the insurance industry.
I attended Harvard Extension School for data science, and am truly a lifelong learner of all things techy. I have a fantastically supportive wife, and 2 kids that have made me balder and fatter than I would like to admit. In my spare time, I enjoy being a sub-sub-par guitar player, chasing my kids around, and learning more technical skills. I look forward to serving all of you, and hope you get the R bug just like I did!
