By now, all the data pro world should have heard about the R language, especially since Microsoft is committed to integrate it into their data platform products. So you installed the R base system and the IDE of your choice. But it's like buying a new car - nobody is content with the standard. You know there are packages to get you started with analysis and visualization, but which ones?

A bundle called The Tidyverse comes in handy, consisting of a philosophy of tidy data and some packages mostly (co-)authored by Hadley Wickham, one of the brightest minds in the R ecosystem. We will take a look at the most popular Tidyverse ingredients like tidyr, ggplot2, dplyr and readr, and we'll have lots of code demos on real world examples.
