Does working with R or R Studio mean that you have to be good with programming and do lots of scripting work? I see R/R Studio is a requirement for many Business Analyst roles but i thought BA role was mostly just reporting and data visualization work and that all scripting/data querying tasks were handled by database teams of the company, well at least that’s how it was at my previous employer.

I’ve been using RStudio for a few months now and I still learned a few things from your video! My favorite is the different themes for the editor/ console, so much easier to look at than the white background. I had no idea there were options! Thanks!

Watching your nice video I noticed the ‘workspace’ pane in your upper right panel. How did it get there? It does not appear to be standard? At least version 1.0.106 does not ship with it.
What am I missing?
