For a person who's trying to learn deep learning, how far can R take me? I know the keras package is a big step in that regard, but I can't find many resources other than the Deep Learning with R book. I have 0 experience with Python but almost all the online courses use it, so I started to think about whether I would need to learn it in order to do some advanced deep learning, but I really didn't want to spend the time learning another language. So I guess what I wanted to know is: can R do the same things Python does in deep learning? And what are some good resources to help me learn it?

Thanks in advance!
