Re: [houstonr] Request for Meeting Presenters

From: Scott C.
Sent on: Friday, March 2, 2012 12:49 PM

I may be able to do a talk in May sometime on the rOpenSci project.  This is a collaborative project (seven ecologists as of now) to create R packages to bring open source *science* data to R users (including publications, references [read: mendeley/crossref/etc.], and data) - mainly through APIs, but also scraping when no APIs are available.  We hope to extend to all science data, but we are starting with data close to our own expertise right now.  See our repos at github ( and website (

Is there any interest in this? I could do an overview of what we do, how to interact with APIs.  I would be very eager to get feedback from the community

Hey gang-

I'm sending this out to the group since we currently have no presenters scheduled for 2012 and we're approaching March pretty fast.

In the past we've had people express an interest in tutorials/overviews on the following topics:
1. ggplot2
2. lattice
3. plyr & reshape
4. time series packages
5. S3 vs. S4 objects
6. Modeling & classification in R
7. Real life use cases - just getting up in front of the room and talking about how you've used R.

Would anybody be interested in presenting on any of these topics?  It could be as advanced or as introductory as you'd like to make it.
