Exploratory Data Analysis in R for Absolute Beginners

In this live codealong, you will be introduced to the basics of exploring new datasets in R. We'll explore a dataset about customers' paths through a website to analyze their onboarding experience. You will calculate summary statistics and draw visualizations to generate insights. After the code-along, you will get access to a solution notebook to use as a future reference!

We will be using DataCamp Workspace. All you need is a DataCamp account. If you need help, read the Getting Started with Workspace tutorial. Note that members of some enterprise groups do not yet have access to use DataCamp Workspace. Create a free DataCamp account with your personal email address to follow along.
