I was just about to send a post to the list advertising the free Coursera
course "Introduction to Computational Finance and Financial Econometrics".
This course is based on my senior undergrad course of the same title (see
http://faculty.washington.edu/ezivot/econ424/econ424.htm ). The course
starts September 3rd! I use R throughout the course for financial data
analysis and visualization, but it is not an R programming course.
This course is part of the University of Washington's participation with
Coursera. Several other UW courses of interest are
Robert Richards Chaired Professor of Economics
Adjunct Professor of Finance
Adjunct Professor of Statistics
Adjunct Professor of Applied Mathematics
Department of Economics

I searched the third quarter archives for any mention of this, and didn't
find anything. So here goes. Eric Zivot is using R in the course.
I highly recommend Coursera. I took Machine Learning this past spring and
highly recommend it and other courses. Alas, I can't sign up as I'm signed
up for Computing for Data Analysis (another course using R).
