Monthly Meetup

Update: As of Mon 4/8, it's just likely just Jay and I with known material to present. If anyone else would like to walk through a package, project, or interest, please do so! Presentations can be anywhere from 5-30min. We'd like this to be very informal and fun for all involved.

----------

Come to the first of what we hope will become a long-standing, rich tradition of decades of continuous monthly meetups! If you'd like to present or have a presentation request (something you'd like to learn or see), please comment below!


Jay and I have brainstormed some "filler" topics if we're low on volunteer presentations:

- R Studio
- Shiny
- Using R for geo-spatial plotting
- Neural network/machine learning modeling

We're quite excited to have momentum again -- hope to see you there!

 

PS: Coffee Bene does request that we spend $3/person (from them, or $5 in pizza from Davanni's) in order to use the room. If you would purchase a coffee and/or snack when you arrive, that would be appreciated!

    I know this is last minute, but if you need more presentations I can share something short on interfacing with databases, regression for data too big for memory, and automating reports (knitr).

      That would be great! I know John and I both have a short presentation we can do and Rodrigo probably won't make it. Having a third presentation would work out well!

      This is what I'm most interested in learning about R! I use SAS professionally and it has great out-of-core support, but I would much rather use open source tools. I can't make this meeting, but would love to see something posted about your work-flow for datasets too large for memory. Such as how you do the important steps of cleaning, munging and EDA.

    Sorry, my waiting list spot opened up just two hours before the meeting. Not enough notice for my family. Hope to make the next one!

    Agh--I hate to bail so last-minute, but I have to send my M.A. paper off to my committee tonight (!) and am working through some last-minute revisions. Thought I'd be done in time, but no such luck. Hope your evening is more fun than mine! :-)

    Sorry, won't be able to make it over there in time. Hopefully someone closer can get a seat!

    Sorry folks, but this week is giving me no joy. Hope to catch you lot at the next meetup.

    Is the room capped at 30 is that why the limit to the meetup? If interest lies in an area I know a bit about I'd be willing to present something in the future - I've used R daily for the past 6 years and have a few packages I'm working on.

      Thanks for the information. I live close so I can swing by in case others don't make it and if the room fills up I can step out.

      That's a great idea Brandon, I'm guessing it will work out for you. Look forward to meeting you.

    By the way, John Henderson is going to talk about geo-spatial plotting and I'm going to walk through a side project I did on simulating roulette (http://beechplane.wordpress.com...­), sounds like Robert Smith may also have a topic or two! (see his comment here).
    If memory serves, 30 people in this meeting room may make it a bit cozy tight. And if you can't make it be sure to change the status here, because we've got a waiting list, thanks!

    I've got a sick kid...I'll have to join you next time.

    Does anyone who is planning on coming happen to have a micro-HDMI to HDMI adapter? If so, could you please bring it. The projector I'm bringing has both VGA and HDMI ports. Thanks!

    April 9, 2013

    • Winston C.

      I have a Mini-Displayport/Thunder­bolt to HDMI adapter, which I'll bring. It's not mini-HDMI, but it should work for Mac laptops.

      April 9, 2013

    • Erik I.

      Thanks! And I do have a VGA and HDMI cables, along with a micro-HDMI to VGA adapter. So we should be good to go. See you tomorrow.

  • Rodrigo

    John + Jay: Thanks for getting the group revived! I'm relatively new to R and looking forward to learning from my fellow RUGers.

    Here's a little visualization I did last week that used a lot of R/ggplot2: http://www.rodrigozamith.com/20...­. Probably of greater interest to the group is how I put it together: http://www.rodrigozamith.com/20...­.

    It's not very elegant (or efficient), so I'm very open to feedback from the group. I'd also be happy to talk about/present it if you guys are running short on that.

    • Jay J.

      That'd be great Rodrigo! How much time would you like? John and I both have some topics we could talk about too (though we don't have to).

    I'm new to R and would like to learn more.

    Please include a topic on RHadoop. Thanks!

    March 26, 2013

  • Erik I.

    Thanks for setting this up guys! If you'd like a projector, let me know. I have one with HDMI and VGA hookups, and a portable screen that I can bring.

    March 25, 2013

    • Jay J.

      Yes Please! John mentioned you might be able to bring that and it'd be great if you did!

      March 25, 2013

    • John H.

      Excited to see you were coming, Erik! I missed a good part of your data-tables package overview from last year... I've run into mention of it on StackOverflow; perhaps you could re-give that at some point if there's interest?

      March 26, 2013

  • Jean-marie B.

    Love to learn

    March 26, 2013

    • John H.

      Hi Jean-Marie -- good to see you here!

      March 26, 2013

  • Jay J.

    Does anyone have a topic they would like to talk about? Any recent work you'd be able to share? Perhaps you just started using some package and you'd like to share the benefits and of it, or anything else R-related that may be of interest to others?

    March 26, 2013

  • Christian M.

    Out of town on this day, but I'll be coming regularly.
