David Keyes from R for the Rest of Us created some videos for EvaluATE that show you a bit more about what R is and why you might consider learning it. In these videos you’ll learn what importing data into R looks like and how you can use a few lines of code to analyze your data, and you’ll see how you can do this all in RMarkdown. The videos should give you a good sense of what working in R looks like and help you decide if it makes sense for you to learn it.
