I have decided to target my career toward analytics / datamining. For various reasons that are outside the scope of this post, I have access to a lot of interesting data for which I could get an expertise in and charge a nice amount of money for.
I am a web application developer so I know programming very well and have a basic know of stats.
Problem is that my knowledge of stats is quite limited (I know the basic concepts) and I frankly dont know where to start. I have started to learn R but quickly got stuck when I wanted to analyze my own data sets because I havent found training targeted a people who are beginners in stats AND R. Is there such a thing?
Actually, I have had such a hard time to find real world examples that I am thinking about starting a blog to explain real life case from start to finish.
