This is a group of R enthusiasts living in the Greater Houston area.

R is an open source statistical platform used in a wide range of academic, hobbyist, and professional applications. This group exists to promote R's use in the Houston area, as well as to provide a forum to exchange tips, tricks, ideas, and code.

People of all experience levels with R, from novice to expert are welcome. We have members who are just starting out with R as well as several that have contributed packages and code to the R project.
