The Coursera courses start today! It'd be great to get together next week and talk about them, and see what people having been thinking in terms of their own data ideas. Bonus points for eye patches, tricornes, and/or pirate jokes. Perhaps afterwards we can find some grog!

At the last gathering, we decided to meet once a week alternating between Mondays and Tuesdays. So the first two paRties will be April 14 and 22!

Continuing discussions and future announcements will be via a Google Group: email [masked] for an invite

    What sort of background is necessary for this course? I'm interested but a self-taught novice in programming, though very interested in data visualization.

    What is r? I'm not in the it field. More of a magic the gathering geek.

      R is a computer language used for data analysis and visualization. For example, if you see a map of NYC with neighborhoods in different colors depending on the number of tweets sent in the last week, that's likely done using an R package. It's also good for pirate jokes.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
