Getting Started with R

If you’re just starting out learning how to work with R, do yourself a huge favor and install R Studio immediately after R. R Studio is an “integrated development environment” that interfaces with R. In practical terms, R Studio provides some graphical user interface that tidies up  your workflow within R but still maintains the command line feel and control of R.

Here is a screenshot of R Studio in action with some code I was recently writing. Neat!

After installing R Studio, you’re going to want some references. Here’s my short list of useful books and websites.
