The R Ecosystem

8,417 views

Published on

R is more than just a language. Many of the reasons why R has become such a popular tool for data science come from the ecosystem surrounding the R project. R users benefit from the many resources and packages created by the community, while commercial companies (including Microsoft) provide tools to extend and support R, and services to help people use R.
In this talk, I will give an overview of the R Ecosystem and describe how it has been a critical component of R’s success, and include several examples of Microsoft’s contributions to the ecosystem.
