    Great to meet everyone last night! The link to Jim's Github respository for his project on interfacing Python and R is here:

    I have a spatial data processing with R (including maps with ggplot) course already put together that I could run through. Here is the link: https://dl.dropbox.com/u/9577903/broomspatial.pdf. I could also prepare a spatial econometrics, basic time-series/forecasting, ggplot, or knitr talk if people are interested.

      Hi Frank, that all sounds great! Let's talk on Thursday and find a time when you can present for the group.

    A family emergency arose and I need to go to Seattle. I look forward to the next meeting.

    • Garrett G.

      Hi Corina, I hope everything is OK. See you next time.

  • Aaron S.

    Let's do this.

  • Corina L.

    My specialty is in using GLM/GLMMs: interpreting the output, and I know some great model selection tricks.

    March 7, 2013

    • Garrett G.

      Sure Corina, that sounds good -- I'm thinking that will happen in May or June.

      March 7, 2013

    • Corina L.

      Great, I'll be around in May, but not June-Aug

  • Stefan Th. G.

    I could do something on text processing with R if there's interest (I'd understand if there isn't since most people 'just' do stats with R, just offering, feel free to say no).

    March 7, 2013

    • Garrett G.

      I think there will be interest in text processing -- I know I'm interested. Right now our first meeting looks like it might be organized around graphics, but I'll definitely work you into the presentation list very soon. Thanks!

      March 7, 2013

  • Noah S.

    Once there is a time and location I can provide a more solid commitment.

    I like the idea of meeting at ucsb with both keynotes and lightening talks. Wednesday night doesn't usually work for me (Thursday would be better) but it is probably the best night for most folks.
    I really like the idea of 'hack-a-thons' and would look forward to working with programmers who have a different background.
