Alice Daish on ‘R Awesomeness’

Alice works as a data scientist for the British Museum and is a huge R enthusiast! While previously mainly used by scientists and statisticians, R has started to become more popuplar in companies now. With its over 7k different packages, Alice feels like R is usually able to solve her coding problems. She highlighted three packages which she finds particularly useful which are knitr for dynamic report generation, data.table and Shiny which creates a graphical user interface without requiring any front end development skills.”
