R free week has ended, but you can still sign up and start learning on our Data Analyst in R path for free!

No credit card required!

July 20-27, all courses and projects in the Data Analyst in R path are free to celebrate the relaunch of our new introductory R programming courses!


[The new courses are] now very beginner-friendly. And the workflow on the tidyverse is very helpful.

The best parts of the courses were when they took a concept that seemed daunting and abstract and then made it relatable and easy to understand

The courses introduced R to me in a simple way, requiring no prior knowledge of the language. But it wasn't too simplistic, so it kept my level of interest high.

How our interactive R programming courses work

At Dataquest, we do things a little differently. You won’t find any lecture videos here. Nor will you find any multiple-choice quizzes or fill-in-the-blank assessments.

Instead, we challenge you to write real R code and work with real datasets. From the first mission of the first course, you’ll be writing and running your own R code using our interactive code-running platform. You’ll get real-time feedback when your code is correct, and hints, answers, and access to our amazing learner community for whenever you need a little help.

At the end of the course, you’ll often be challenged to put your new skills together by building a real data science project. Our guided projects will help you build skills and confidence with R even as you’re building out a cool project portfolio for your Github.

FAQ & Details

What do I have to do to access the free courses?

Simply sign up for a free Dataquest account (or log in to your existing account) and you will have access to every course in the Data Analyst in R learning path.

You can start at the beginning, or dive in at any point in the path you’d like. If you have an existing account and have already made progress on a Python path, don’t worry — your Python progress has been saved, and you can switch paths back and forth at any time from your dashboard.

All courses in the R path will be free from July 20 at 0:00 UTC to July 28 at 0:00 UTC.

Do I need a credit card to sign up?

No! You can create a Dataquest account for free, and no credit card is required. Even after the free week has ended, you'll be able to use your free account to access any of our dozens of free missions.

Are there any limits to how much I can do during this week?

Nope! Our platform is self-serve and allows you to work at your own pace. You can complete as much of the path as you’d like during the free week, and you will be issued certificates for any courses you complete.

After the free week is over, users who do not have a paid subscription will no longer have access to paywalled parts of the R path, but your progress from the free week will be saved, and you will still have access to a free mission in each course.

How can I access the full R path once Free Week is over?

Once the free week is over, a Dataquest subscription will be required to access the full R path.

Based on a 2020 survey of more than 600 Dataquest learners, 91% of students rated a Dataquest subscription a good or great investment, and 97% said they recommended Dataquest for career advancement.
