The Software and Data Carpentry workshops are a great way to jump-start your R programming skills. Workshops are offered regularly across campus, check out the UF Informatics Institute website for upcoming workshops.
Also, all of the course materials are freely available at any time, so you can work through these lessons on your own. The Data Analysis and Visualization in R is a great place to start, and the Programming with R and R for Reproducible Scientific Analysis lessons provide more in-depth resources for mastering R.
