What Programming Language Do You Use?

Post by Jinxed » Fri Sep 07, 2018 5:01 pm

Back in grad school, I had access to SPSS, which I found phenomenal. Now that I no longer have access to SPSS, I spent some time learning R, and I've begun learning Python.

What do you guys use? Which do you find the best?

I use python to scrapping data from web and to make calculus in backend. But I have used R to create statistics graphics.

I think the best language is python that let you do whatever you want. But R are very interesting and is good to know it too.

Everything depends what do you want to do.

I typically work with R and Excel.

I did a post asking the same few weeks ago. Anyway, I use R and spreadsheet.
I think the complex here is scrapping the data from web and do the code to do automatically.

Scraping data is certainly one of the most difficult parts. However, with RVest and the Tidyverse packages, it really isn't bad using R. Just takes some effort to figure out how to interact with the pages you wish to scrape.
