Why do we love R so much?

Roger Peng

When Jeff, Brian, and I started the Johns Hopkins Data Science Specialization we decided early on to organize the program around using R. Why? Because we love R, we use it everyday, and it has an incredible community of developers and users. The R community has created an ecosystem of packages and tools that lets R continue to be relevant and useful for real problems.

We created a short video to talk about one of the reasons we love R so much.
