It was actually an Intro to stars course, so there was probably a lot of that you don’t needs. It was the Duke Intro to Stars with R course on Coursera. There is some ggplot on it. It if you already kind of know R I would just looks for the r ggplot cheat sheet as that is pretty much everything you need to know!

Yeah - R & ggplot2 are my go-to for data exploration :). Excited that you're getting indoctrinated!

woah woah woah, people use something other than python for data munging?! say it ain't so!

Python schmython ;)

I find python is better for super ugly data, where you need to do a lot of grepping to get it into a usable form.

Ggplot2 in R is the best for quickly getting to know my data and generating those "huh... that's funny" moments which lead to discoveries :). Because faceting charts into small multiples is so useful & it makes it easy to switch between visual forms.

Have you tried the ggplot package for python? How does it compare? I have not used either, just trying to form a reference for the inevitable time someone asks for a recommendation.
