Exploring the R Language

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

What is R Programming?

R Programming language is used for performing statistical computing as well as graphical processing of data. It was developed by Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman at University of Auckland, New Zealand.

Various data scientists, statisticians and data analysts use the R programming language for analyzing data and carrying out statistical analysis using visualizations. With the help of R, you can perform data analysis on structured and unstructured data.

History of R Language

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.
