R Programming Bootcamp

Hi Triangle useRs,

Starting Thursday, September 27th at 6:30PM there will be a 4-week R Programming Bootcamp. It will follow a Coursera R Programming course, which is available here: https://www.coursera.org/course/compdata

The general format of the course is that lectures become available on Monday and you have until the following Monday to complete the programming assignments. We will plan to meet on Thursday night, which is a rough-midway point. The meeting will serve as an opportunity to ask questions, work on assignments, compare solutions, and explain concepts to classmates (which is often the most effective learning method.) This also gives you three weeknights to watch roughly one hour of lecture material before each meeting.


Time: Thursday nights starting September 27th. 6:30-8:15ish 
Place: Bull City Coworking. 112 S. Duke St, Durham, NC 27701

Thanks to Eric McMillen for organizing, and thanks to Robert Petrusz at Bull City Coworking for generously providing a space for us.

See you there,
Ian

    I made it to two of the four meetups in this series, but did finish the class. I wonder how everybody did, whether they found the meetups helpful with the course, and whether they're making use of R now.

    This is confusing... three meetups, 9/27, 10/4 and 10/18, but I think they are all the same thing: the first 3 weeks of the 4-week series. Right?

    I went ahead and confirmed for all three. Is that the right thing to do?
