About this course
R is a widely used programming language that works well with data. It’s a great option for statistical analysis, and has an active development community that’s constantly releasing new packages, making R code even easier to use. It’s built around a central data science concept: The DataFrame, so if you’re interested in data science, analysis, and visualization, you’ll want to learn how to use R.
