Why RStudio Focuses on Code-Based Data Science

Michael Lippis of The Outlook podcast recently interviewed RStudio’s Lou Bajuk to discuss data science with R and Python, and why RStudio encourages its customers to adopt a multi-lingual data science approach. During the interview, Michael and Lou examined three main topics:

  1. RStudio’s mission to support open source data science
  2. How and why RStudio supports R and Python within its products
  3. How business leaders are delivering value from data science investments

I’ve extracted the most interesting parts of the podcast interview below and edited the quotes for clarity and length. You can listen to the entire interview here.
