I dunno if R is that hot, but I think RStudio's Shiny (http://www.rstudio.com/shiny/) is on its way to making it hot. Best thing to come out in the R world in a long time. Besides being a great visualization tool for people who already use R, it might be something that makes programming easier to learn for kiddos (they can even learn some HTML + JS at the same time...) This almost brings R to a level where all the material taught in a freshman COMP101 class could be implemented in R (... as long as you don't even mention OOP)
