Hi BARUG members,
If you missed last night's social event at The Patio, you missed a great time. Thanks to everyone who came for the friendly atmosphere and lively conversation. And a special thanks to the evening's sponsors, Revolution Analytics and O'Reilly Media, for providing the drinks and bar snacks.
By the way, O'Reilly is the producer of the Strata Conference, the big data and data science conference which will be held in Santa Clara Feb 28 - Mar 1 and where several R-related talks and tutorials will be featured. You can find out more about Strata Conference at http://bit.ly/zavHvQ , and thanks to O'Reilly, BARUG Group members can Save 20% on registration with code USER20 . Also, today is the last day for discounted early-bird registration.
Lastly, the organizing committee is looking for suggestions for future meetups. You can suggest a topic for a future meeting by clicking "Schedule a New Meetup" link on the group home page. You don't need a time, a place, or a speaker -- just an idea. Please feel free to suggest speakers, too! You can sign up for suggested meetups too, to signal your interest. The organizing committee will select popular suggestions and find times and venues and announce them to the group as they develop the program for 2012.
For the organizing committee,
# David Smith
