It has some functions that do a little too much like `c()` that both creates a vector by passing a list of arguments, or it can combine all columns of a matrix.
I have a feeling R is not for me.
R was great, but it's largely been supplanted by python / scitools / scypy, although I'm sure that a bunch of people will continue to use and develop R packages for decades. R still has a better range of packages for any weird branch of math or science you might ever need, but python is catching up and I can only imagine python stuff is better maintained.
If you aren't looking to do advanced mathematics it's a really weird choice of language, and if you are please let me know what you're up to because I like me some recreational math.
My favourite quote: at the end of the behind-the-scene video, the interviewee said "Mankind sends a probe into space to catch a comet and land on it. And we need a great director, film and actors to convince people this is interesting."

Hey there! My name is May. I'm a 20-something tech-loving, CrossFitting, food-munching, engineer. I was born and raised in Thailand, and moved to Canada back in high school years.
I’ve completed the mechanical engineering program with a business minor at University of Victoria. Though, now I'm working as a junior software developer at ExcelSystems.
My personal interests are in technologies, food and fitness. Outside of work, I enjoy software developing, CrossFit training, and volunteering as a personal trainer. You can check out my current programming projects on my Github page!
