The R Open Source Project Structure

The course runs on April 16-17 from 09:00 AM to 02:00 PM.

At the center of the R Open Source Project and R Community is R Core, a group of approximately twenty developers who maintain R and guide its evolution. The official public structure for the R Community is provided by the R Foundation, a not for profit organization with an impressive list of members and supporters. The R Foundation ensures the financial stability of the R-project and holds and administers the copyright of R software and its documentation.

What Can You Expect from R?

R is a language! You do data analysis by writing functions and scripts, not by pointing and clicking. That may sound daunting if you are new to programming, but R is an easy language to learn, and a very natural and expressive one for data analysis. Working with R is an interactive experience that encourages experimentation, exploration and play. It is likely that whatever your area of interest, you will find R packages (libraries of functions) that will be immediately helpful. And, of course, R is renowned for its capabilities to visualize data.
