The two most popular languages for analysis in data science are R and Python. R has primarily been used for statistical analysis in academia, whereas Python is primarily used by developers trying to enter the realm of data science. Each language has their own advantage and can work in combination with each other. In this session, we will discuss why a data scientist would use each language and the hurdles as you start on your data science journey.

You will learn:

  • The various uses for R and Python in Data Science
  • Programming using both R and Python together in Projects
  • Both R and Python as you start your Data Science Journey
