What is R and Why should You Learn R?
You know that R works great for creating graphs and for performing statistical analyses in Big Data applications. But did you know about the increased utilization of the R programming language for reporting clinical research data?
Have you been sitting on the sidelines and asking yourself what is R and why you should learn it? If so, then you are like thousands of other SAS programmers searching for answers. Learning another programming language might sound like a daunting and time-consuming undertaking. Moreover, learning R is difficult than learning SAS. But like you, I too began by writing my first line of R code. Now I gained a considerable amount of fluency in a language that was once new to me at one time, and I would like to share what I have learned with you now.
