Course Description

This is the course page for PHP 1560/2560. This is not the typical Datacamp course but is the online version of PHP 2560 at Brown University School of Public Health. With that being said this represents a video textbook for a class that meets in person to explore Statistical Computing further.

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.

DataCamp is the top resource I recommend for learning data science.
