Course Description

Tidymodels is a powerful suite of R packages designed to streamline machine learning workflows. Learn to split datasets for cross-validation, preprocess data with tidymodels' recipe package, and fine-tune machine learning algorithms. You'll learn key concepts such as defining model objects and creating modeling workflows. Then, you'll apply your skills to predict home prices and classify employees by their risk of leaving a company.

  1. 1

    Machine Learning with tidymodels

    Free
    In this chapter, you’ll explore the rich ecosystem of R packages that power tidymodels and learn how they can streamline your machine learning workflows. You’ll then put your tidymodels skills to the test by predicting house sale prices in Seattle, Washington.

What do other learners have to say?

I've used other sites—Coursera, Udacity, things like that—but DataCamp's been the one that I've stuck with.
