About R Meetup
R is an open source programming language for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphical visualization. R has an estimated one million users worldwide, and its user base is growing. While it is most commonly used within academia, in fields such as computational biology and applied statistics, it is gaining currency in commercial areas such as quantitative finance and business intelligence.
The strength of R lies in its ability to accommodate various add-on “packages” which gives it an edge over other statistical tools used for research. Additionally, R’s strengths as a language are its powerfully built-in tools for inferential statistics, its compact modeling syntax, its data visualization capabilities, and its ease of connectivity with persistent data stores (from databases to flatfiles). For all its strengths, though, R has an admittedly steep learning curve; the first steps towards learning and using R can be challenging for some.
