My 3 favorite programs? R, Bookends and Exposure.
The first choice is Rstudio (since 2012, being a long time SAS user). Here is the most recent JJ Allaire keynote
I was a bit with late with Bookends in 2018 (being a long time Sente user) but here is an introduction by Jon Ashwell.
And I am currently migrating to Exposure (after having used Lightroom for 13 years) by Jeff Butterworth
Life changes every day while it is sometimes better to switch bikes not gears.
