R (http://cran.r-project.org/) is a language and environment for statistical computing and graphics. It was released under the GNU license meaning that everyone can copy and redistribute it. There are more than 2,500 packages extending the functionality of R.
In this talk, I will give a brief introduction to R. I will discuss the pros and cons of teaching R and using R in psychological research.
