The colleague below Layne has provided you with several good sources to learn both R and Python languages. I will focus on adding value to your question focusing on the link between both languages to the professional field. For example, the main languages that are used most frequently to make artificial intelligence projects are Python and R. Python is one of the most used due to its simplicity. R is an environment and programming language with a focus on statistical analysis. Maybe, if you need to learn R and Python, you are likely to want to project yourself or perform as a Data Analysts or Data scientists. Data analysts need to have a baseline understanding of five core competencies: programming, statistics, machine learning, data munging, and data visualization. Whereas a data analyst might look at data from only a single source, a data scientist explores data from many different sources. Data scientists use tools like Hadoop (the most widely used framework for distributed file system processing), they use programming languages like Python and R, and they apply the practices of advanced math and statistics. Udacity, Coursera and edX, three excellent platforms in MOOCs to learn these programming languages.

José recommends the following next steps:

  • Enroll in any course for beginners on these platforms: Udacity, Coursera and edX.
  • Visit the starting point links, for learning both languages R and Python, provided by colleague Layne.
  • Success !!!

Learning a programming language is easiest thing, you just need to follow the syntax.The hard part is to build the logic.
So may it be R, python or any other language you can refer different sites the best is Udemy where you can find different courses from different instructors.
In order to get deep knowledge I would say you should do hands-on practice, like by developing some simple game by following the syntax on Google. Practicing by developing some application will boost your confidence in coding as well as you will be then able to solve real life problems with your code.
R is basically used for data science and the language is very easy, its the high level programming language so the syntax is english.
Say for example you want to print something on screen you just need to do:
print("Hello!")
Yes its that simple :)
Same is with Python.
So, I would say it again, learning a programming language is easy, but building logic is difficult, so practice developing applications, try to automate manual work.
Best Luck!

Hi Majon,

Both Python and R are fairly quick to pick. Python is much more generalized and has broad adoption as a programming language. R (and Shiny for UI) is focused on statistically analysis which can lead to a strong career in data science or analysis.

Layne recommends the following next steps:

  • Here is a good over of R vs Python: https://www.guru99.com/r-vs-python.html
  • Here is a good starting point for learning Python: https://www.learnpython.org/
