Exploring the Language

Let’s take a look at some facts about R and its philosophies.

R first appeared in 1993 as an implementation of the S programming language. The term R comes from the fact that both of its creators’ names begin with the initial of R. Version 3.5.1 rolled out in July of 2018; we call it Feather Spray. This is a programming language and a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. You will often find statisticians and data miners using it to develop statistical software and for data analysis.

Apart from a command-line interface, some IDEs like the RStudio let us work with graphical front ends.
