Use of "R" in Data Science

Overview

R is a full-fledged programming language with a radically different approach to processing large and complex datasets. 

It is an open-source project that depends on a worldwide development community to grow and evolve. 

Like Linux, R is maintained and supported by those individuals who use it and contribute to its ongoing development.

Agenda

• What is this "R"?

• Why it is the most widely used programming language  in the field of DataScience

• Why do people say "R has a steep Learning Curve"?

• How to enter into this "R World"?
