Course Description

Learn how to write a data report quickly and effectively with the R Markdown package, and share your results with your friends, colleagues or the rest of the world. Learn how you can author your own R Markdown reports, and how to automate the reporting process so that you have your own reproducible reports. By the end of the interactive data analysis reporting tutorial, you will be able to generate reports straight from your R code, documenting your work — and its results — as an HTML, pdf, slideshow or Microsoft Word document.

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