R is one of the most important programming languages when it comes to the domain of data science. It is a programming language that is especially suited for Data Science applications. It is a powerful statistical computing platform that is used for deriving valuable insights from Data. It is extensively used for data manipulation, business analytics, machine learning algorithms and data visualization techniques.
Today Data Science with R is one of the top skills that are being demanded in the corporate world. But R programming on itself won’t fetch you a high-paying job since it is just a tool to draw inferences from data and hence you need a lot of other skills to fully exploit the benefits of this statistical computing tool.

Today I launched R-users.com.
My vision for this site is to give one more tool for people and companies to find R users and promote collaboration.
The site allows R users (and companies) to post “job” listings on all things related to R.
Examples of who should care about this:
1) Companies looking to hire people with R skills.
2) R users who are looking for a job
3) R freelancer who wish to invite people to get in touch with them. Just set up your “resume” here:
4) R users who are looking to find partners for their work. This includes people who want help with making an R package from their new statistical algorithm, or speeding up their R code. Just post a “job” with the details.
The site is still in BETA stages, and any input/idea you have about the site will be very welcomed (ranging from “great job” to “you are missing the ___ category”).
