Manchester R User Group Meeting

The inaugural meeting of the Manchester R user group will be on 7 February 2013. We’ll meet from 6:30 pm for a 7:00 pm start, with three short talks with breaks for discussion and refreshments. If you are new to R there will also be a short tutorial from 6:00 pm until 6:30 pm. If you don’t know what R is or are just getting started, then come along and learn the basics. This will be a hands-on session, led by Chris Campbell, so bring along a laptop if you’re keen to get involved. If you would like to participate in this, please let us know when you register.

    Good to find out that there are so many R users at the University from so many different departments. I think this group has a bright future.

    As a novice I found it very helpful to speak to experienced users of R.

    Hi Gerry,
    Thanks for your message but surely you will better by the 7th Feb? I know man flu is VERY serious but I should hope that you would be over the worst by then? (Or were you perhaps thinking that the meeting was tonight?)

    Hope you are feeling better soon,
    Liz

    Unfortunately I won't be able to come, I have developed a bad case of man flu, and barking quite badly (coughing) very sorry as I was really looking forward to this.

    won't be able to arrive until 7:10. Would be that be ok? I can always read up on R before I come.

    • Chris C.

      Hi Andrew, the meetup will be quite informal - no specialist knowledge is needed. Our first three presentations will be geared to helping out less experienced R users, so this is a good time to join :-)

  • Liz M.

    We now have 10 people registered for ManchesterR - but there's space for more, so do spread the word if you know anyone else interested in coming along..

  • Liz M.

    Hi Andrew, of course, that's not a problem.. we look forward to seeing you on the 7th Feb.
    Kind regards
    Liz
