Why use R, Git and GitHub?
For data analytics, statistical analysis and data science there isn't a better tool than R. Best of all, R is open source so it's completely free, even for commercial use. In the world of data, open source tools are more powerful than their paid for competitors.
Part of what makes R so powerful is its fantastic suite of cutting edge, custom packages. This makes working with data, plotting and building models an absolute breeze. For version control, Git is the most popular software in the world alongside the platform GitHub. R together with Git and GitHub power analytics in organisations across the world in the private, public and third sectors.
