    What we're about

    R is a powerful environment for statistical computing, data analysis and graphical visualization. It’s open source nature and extensible via add-on "packages" allowing it to keep up with leading edge academic researches.

    This R Users Group is dedicated to bringing together area practitioners of R (from industry and academia alike) to exchange knowledge, inspire new users and spur the adoption of R for innovative research and commercial applications. We meet twice a year to:

    · Discover the power of R as a serious, general and industrial strength data mining, analysis tool

    · Case studies of real-life R applications in industry

    · Academic development of R

    · Sharing knowledge, tricks and experience

    · Other programming language including, but not limited to, SAS, Python and etc.

    · Provide R beginners with an opportunity to meet more experienced user

    Users from all levels are welcome.
