I have embarked on a journey to learn Data Science with CodeAcademy. During my search/research I stumbled upon lots of discussions on choosing Python or R for learning Data Science. It seems to be a lot more important to choose either of those.
But as a newbie, want to understand, experts view? Why it’s important? I heard from people that R is an important language for Data Science to learn. Is that true?
Which one to choose? Why? If I learn Python, will I have to learn R also, or vice versa?
Any guidelines and help pls.
