About the Book
This book is intended for data scientists with some familiarity with the R programming language who are seeking to do data science using the Tidyverse family of packages. Through 5 chapters, you will cover importing, wrangling, visualizing, and modeling data using the powerful Tidyverse packages, including the new Tidymodels framework. The Tidyverse packages provide a simple but powerful approach to data science which scales from the most basic analyses to massive data deployments. This book covers the entire life cycle of a data science project and presents specific tidy tools for each stage.
