    :cyclone: Learn R, in R.

    I have not tried the Coursera ones, but I am trying to learn R currently and I’ve really been enjoying Datacamp! I’m also going to check out code academy and swirlstats to supplement my knowledge. Then my plan is to just take one of those skill assessments on LinkedIn for my profile. I don’t know if there’s an “official” R certification.
