RStudio is a programming language and software system designed specifically to do all things related to statistical computing. This programming language was first developed in 1993 by two statistical experts, Ross Ihaka and Robert Gentleman at Auckland University, New Zealand. Until now, the R programming language continued to grow rapidly along with the increasing popularity of the term “Big Data” and the increasing need for companies to be data scientists to process and analyze data in the company as a basis for policy making and automating business processes to be data-driven. Programming languages like Python and R have become the main choice for researchers and practitioners in the field of data science to process and analyze data both for research and business purposes. Therefore, for a beginner in the field of data science, R is a highly recommended programming language to master.
Why Can RStudio Become So Popular?
After getting to know the R programming language a little, the next step is to install this environment systems as IDEs to make it easier for us when coding later. Following are the steps for installing R:
First, you need to download RStudio first. Then, click the link Download R 3 for Windows (Assuming you use Windows OS), make sure the download process is complete 100%. Install the file downloaded in step 2 on PC or Laptop according to the OS version it has (64 bit or 32 bit). If the installation process has finished correctly, the R icon will appear on the desktop. Next, we need to install this app as an IDE. The app is specifically designed to make it easier for us to process coding and project management later. Therefore, we strongly recommend installing this application before starting to study the use of R itself. Some features of the app include code completion, syntax highlighting, smart indentation, etc. After you click the R icon, then the display will be directed to the Installers for Supported Platforms page section. Select the default option for each installation stage. If the installation process has finished correctly, the RStudio icon will appear on the desktop or toolbar.
