Hello, Hadley Wickham and dplyr!

Hadley Wickham will be at our next meet-up, speaking on "dplyr: Efficient data manipulation for data frames, data tables, databases and more!" His dplyr package is the next iteration of the very popular plyr package for easily manipulating large datasets.

Hadley is truly one of the rock stars of the R community. In addition to dplyr, he is the author of over 30 packages, including ggplot2, reshape, testthat, and devtools. He is currently the Chief Scientist at RStudio.

Our sponsor, Revolution Analytics, will provide the free pizza. Doors open at 5:30, the presentation begins at 6:00.

Please join me in welcoming Hadley to Chicago. I think this will be a meet-up to remember!

    That's what I thought. The show rate never be 100%. I am on waiting list. Can I just go??

      PS - Chase and I would be very grateful if any CRUG members would contribute their time and energy towards finding an alternative meet-up space. We are painfully aware that we are out-growing Jak's.

    Can't make it tonight, but have been working on additional space. Is anyone here an employee of the CME Group by chance? If so, you may be able to assist us in gaining access to the conference rooms on 30 S. Wacker. Please post if you are and would like to assist us!

    I changed my RSVP. I didn't realize CRUG and CHUG were at the same time. Sorry about that. Please post slides and I'm eager to catch up at the next meetup.

    About to take a course in R on Coursera and I'd like to get my feet wet. I'm new so I'll stay at the bottom of the list.

    My spot is now open. I cannot be in 2 places at once.

    FortyFive Person waitlist? IF a secret data-billionaire wants to move this meeting to the ballroom of their mansion, now is the time to emerge from the shadows!

      I've never counted more than 90 people at one of these meetings, even ones with wait lists. That may be different for the good doctor Wickham, but I suspect that there is at least a little more room than suggested by the numbers.

      September 6, 2013

    • Paul T.

      Brian: The best (and only) way to make more room is if people remove themselves from the sign-up list when they discover they cannot attend. Everyone, please: If you cannot attend the meet-up, please take your name off the list. Thanks!
