It was really interesting for my first meet-up event. I wish i will be able to do more events.

Very nice talks - should inspire the writing of at least in-house R packages - Thanks to the speakers, organisers and hosts - and of course great discussions afterwards

thanks all for coming, and again to David Rohan and Accenture for providing such a nice venue. I have uploaded all the slides and related R files from last night to Figshare (a free repository for open science files): http://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.670610

This will coincide with the official release or R Version 3.0.0.
Yes, we're at version 3, not[masked]!
AFAIK, the changes in version 3 itself aren't ground-breaking, it is more an acknowledgement of accumulated past changes, such 64-bit support, parallel computing, etc.

ten minute talk on it?

can do... if anyone volunteers! Im still working primarily on a 32 bit machine on a day-to-day basis so wont benefit from the updates.
suggestion was for Pat!
I see the official version has just been released this afternoon. I haven't tried it yet. Andrew is welcome to say a few words on it....

its most uninspiring! that has to be one of the biggest letdowns ever. they could at least have changed the colour scheme or something! I can pretend to be more enthusiastic about it later! Plus, ive just been fighting with both my mac and windows machines to get them to create packages which precipitated a massive software update of monumental domino proportions... R, mactex, Rstudio, cygwin .... etc...
From what I read, the only notable change is R's handling of vectors/indexes > 2^32 (or something like that). Which isn't very interesting in itself. But since it's a change to the R core libraries, it does mean that all packages need to be re-installed i.e. no copying of packages from previous versions of R etc., if that's what people do. Anyway, you're probably too busy with cygwin etc.!
cygwin bypassed thanks to mac! Thanks also for the update on the package transferability, i just updated all to be sure. i will mention this tonight
Hi ! I've just started learning R
Next: Invite friends
R is an open source language commonly used for statistical computing. There are an estimated 1 million R users worldwide, and that number is rapidly growing.
The Dublin R Users Group is dedicated to promoting R in Ireland, and the bringing together R practitioners to exchange tips, ideas and knowledge.
Dublin R also looks at emergent programming languages related to technical computing and data analytics, such as Julia ( with a view to providing a foundation for a Julia specific user group)
Anyone interested in or curious about R, statistical computing, data analysis, analytics and graphical visualization, or anything else that relates to R or Julia, is very welcome to join up.
