About two months ago, the German online magazine ‘Informatik Aktuell‘ asked me to write an introductory article on R. And so I did.
It’s now only a few days ago that the article was published. It focuses on key concepts of the R language and provides an overview of R’s eco system. Given the space constraints it does not discuss more advanced topics like environments or package developments.

Everyone who wants to read a more comprehensive introduction to R in German should try my book Statistik mit R” (O’Reilly).
