Join Barton Poulson for an in-depth discussion in this video Using RStudio, part of Learning R (2013).
R is a very popular language for working with data, but not everybody wants to…do their work in the R application.…Some people prefer having one window that shows everything they need. Many…people prefer graphical user interfaces, or GUIs, to command line programming.…In addition, the default interface for R looks and acts somewhat differently in…each operating system, which complicates courses like this one.…Fortunately, because R is open source, a number of options to the standard R…environment have been developed.…
The list is rather long, but I wanted to just mention one in particular right…now, and that's RStudio.…If you go to the Web, and go to rstudio.com, you have the option of downloading…RStudio, and what this is an IDE, or an integrated development environment for…R. It's simply a layer that goes over the top of R, which has to be installed separately.…It's a free download, so simply come down here to the bottom left, and click on…Download Now, and then choose the version that you want.…
The course continues with examples on how to create charts and plots, check statistical assumptions and the reliability of your data, look for data outliers, and use other data analysis tools. Finally, learn how to get charts and tables out of R and share your results with presentations and web pages.
