Getting Started with R

R is an open-source statistical programming language. It can be used for a variety of tasks, including (but not limited to): data cleaning/manipulation, regression, clustering, classification, data visualization, etc..

Visit to learn more context about R, and to download the programming language. I also recommend downloading Rstudio, and integrated development environment (IDE) for R.
