What programming language for statistical inference?

just for curiosity…
What language is used most here?
R? MATLAB? Python? Java?

What for prototype or for production?
For example I think MATLAB is mostly used for prototyping, python for both prot. and production…

Answer

I couldnt agree more with a vote for R. R is the “Lingua Franca” of the statistics world. It is the definition of cutting edge, while most packages for MATLAB and SAS take several months. The language is very simple to understand as opposed to SAS. It also gives you the power to connect with C/C++/Python and databases.

Consider Revolution Analytics version of R for a bit more performance.
