    I like R a lot even if it is very hard work getting it to do more complex stuff. I have high hopes for its future though.

      Yes, it's a quick and free introduction to R - not really a course but just a quick overview of R's capabilities. If you would like to attend, please bring along a laptop. Liz

      Hi Kevin - can you please bring along a laptop to the 5pm tutorial please - that way Chris can give a more hands-on session. Thanks

    It it would help at all, one of our R Consultants, Chris Campbell has offered to rock up a bit earlier (5pm) to give a free, brief "introduction to R" overview, demonstrate its capabilities and chat about its usage to anyone who would be interested in this ahead of the main meeting. If you would find this useful and would like to come along let me know ([masked]) as we can also provide you with some printed notes you can take away too. Liz
