We'll have 5+ talks 10 min each. Initially I thought of tips for beginners, but based on the descriptions I got so far from those who volunteered for speaking, there will be some more advanced things as well.
So far 7 people volunteered, of which 2 cannot make it for the date chosen. Therefore, we can still accommodate 1-2 speakers, so if you'd like to give a short talk, please email Szilard.
Eric Klusman: "Introduction to R for the experienced SAS user"
Jeremy Miles: "Everything is data: How R makes you think differently, and why this is a good thing (compared to SPSS/SAS/Stata)"
Szilard Pafka: "Q & A with Szilard"
Tim Triche: "Welcome to the Inferno (or, Map-Reduce in R)"
Joshua Wiley: "Getting help in R"
Update: another volunteer speaker/talk:
Wayne Smith: "Learning R: Sensible Conventions and Pedagogical Decisions"
