It was really insightful, coming from knowing almost nothing about statistics or experimental design, it was easy to understand while not feeling shallow. Just the right amount of information density.

This course was a good intro especially in setting all the necessary software for future courses. I suggest to read the manuals, books and other readings the profs suggest. The resources are helpful.

This was my first introduction to R language. I have to say that setting RStudio and GitHub was one of the more useful lessons.

Well paced. One issue to consider is that it sometimes takes time to install software, especially if it is on office computer.
