Using R for computing with data


What is R?

R has been called the lingua franca of data analysis, with outstanding capabilities for data manipulation, analysis and visualisation. Furthermore, R is already the most popular amongst the leading software for statistical analysis, as measured by a wide variety of indicators, and is rapidly growing in influence.

You can get an introduction in three lines to R, which offers a taste of its capabilities, or dive into some tutorials in R, which provide a direct, hands-on introduction.

More R teaching material can be found on my old academic R website.
