  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     I haven't attended very many, but this was the best one I've attended. It'd be great to have them in SF more often, or at the regular alternating schedule with the South Bay.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Smart people, good questions, excellent turnout. The speaker were top notch. A well organized and moderated event. 

    Jim S. on Dec 14, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Bay Area useR Group is an appropriate forum to discuss about R Programming Language. 

    Madana B. on Dec 13, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     The group seems to be a bit more heavily weighted towards data mining types rather than folks like me (who typically are using R more like a Matlab or Python replacement than as a SAS replacement) but I find some of the topics very interesting. I appreciate the effort you guys do in organizing it! 

    Rich G. on Nov 9, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     I'm looking for more tutorial material, because there is a derth of instructional material on many of the add-on modules. For example, I recently learned lp_solve and igraph modules without much help from good "User's guide" type documentation, all CRAN provides are reference material. More sessions on less esoteric material is desired. 

    Greg O. on Nov 9, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Great group! 

    Jitendra M. on Nov 9, 2011.

    Craig B. on Nov 9, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     New and emerging - It will be exciting to see how this develops. 

    John-Mark A. on Oct 13, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Highly fashionable. 

    Zephyr P. on Jul 13, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     I appreciate everyone's effort in putting on these meetings. They are very helpful in terms of content as well as networking. 

    Robert C C. on Jul 13, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Really impressed by the quality of speakers that they get. I hope to contribute more to the group's organization in the future. 

    Eric L. on Jun 7, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     interesting group. I think we might benefit from more networking/introductions 

    steven m. on May 11, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     If you are interested in learning more about the R programming language, meeting fellow R users, and seeing examples of R being used in real world applications, this MeetUp Group is the right fit. 

    Michael E. D. on Apr 13, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Outstanding. 

    Tom T. on Apr 13, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     excellent, in-depth domain knowledge shared by experts in stats and R 

    Eric on Apr 12, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     This was my first event with the Group. So far, amazingly good. 

    Alan M. on Mar 15, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Interesting fun good networking 

    Nicholas L. on Feb 9, 2011.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     This was my first meeting. Good, but I'd love to have a little time for audience members to talk about particular struggles and successes they encountered or achieved in the previous month. Or some sort of way for the attendees to talk briefly about what they're doing. I'll probably attend another meeting. 

    Jim F. on Dec 15, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     I attended a BASAS user's group meeting last Tuesday. SAS and R draw different audiences. R is much more predominantly male, more tightly clustered around age 35 or so, more white, and less formally dressed; also somewhat more geeky, but I do not mean that perjoratively. I suspect that R users take programming and data analysis more seriously than SAS users, who may be more career oriented than technically oriented. There were far more jobs announced or posted at the SAS meeting compared with the R meeting, where I don't believe there any job announcements made, certainly none from the audience. Conversation was easy to make. I didn't sample the pizza, so no opinion there.

     - nice and eclectic group of participants 

    BenG on Dec 15, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     What a delightful group of people! I can barely wait for the next meeting. 

    Dani U. on Dec 15, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     It was my first meeting, and I enjoyed it. I plan to go to more. 

    Lester W. on Oct 6, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     A mixed group, levels of R expertise and interest seem to vary wildly. It would be useful to conduct a survey to see what people expect from these meetings. 

    Dick T. on Oct 6, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Amazing work being done by the smart team comprising of Jim, David and others ! I wish them all the luck !! 

    Ravi P. on Sep 27, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Fantastic. R (and statistics in general) are cross cutting concerns used by people in many walks of life; this group helps us all get together. 

    Robert M. Horton, P. on Sep 16, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Excellent! 

    Joseph A. di P. on Sep 15, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Reliable connectivity 

    Dan M. on Jul 14, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     A lot of diversity among the members as far as background, interests and skill level. 

    Cindy L. on Jul 14, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     a person would be interested in BARUG because this is one forward edge of what's being done with computing/statistics/data etc., and the people who go to these meetings are the people who make that forward edge happen. 

    MIke J. on Jul 14, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     learn new things and keep up with advance. 

    eva w. on May 12, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     This think this group offers a wealth of knowlege for local users, which can help me grow in my R experience. I noted that there were a lot of first time users for R, it would be great to have a sesion geared toward us newbies were we can get some basic question answered and get some tips 

    Chris A. on May 12, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     To learn about the wide world of R and its multitude of applications and of course, to meet other people who live and breath the language. 

    Chris W. on Mar 10, 2010.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Folks with an interest in statistics and analysis would enjoy this group, the topics are relevant and it seems like a good group of people that attend regularly. 

    Dan W on Dec 9, 2009.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     It's a great way to meet technical experts in fields unrelated to your own, and still be able to communicate using the same language (pun intended). Moreover, 'R' is an indispensable technical tool, so why not learn more about it from folks who use it often? 

    Mike W. on Dec 9, 2009.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Learn more about R. Meet more people who use it. 

    Donna on Nov 11, 2009.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     To share their knowledge of R and learn more. 

    Avinash on May 14, 2009.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Great way to learn about existing R capabilities as well as new developments. 

    Daniel L. on May 14, 2009.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     Get new and more knowledge of R with a group of people. 

    Tieming J. on May 13, 2009.

  • Bay Area useR Group (R Programming Language)

     It is a great way to get your R fix.
