BauchiRUG is a group for R users at all levels (Beginners, Intermediate & Advanced) and from all backgrounds based in Bauchi State and the North eastern part of Nigeria, to meet and discuss R-related topics and to promote the use of R.
R is an open source programming language for statistical computing, data analysis, graphical visualization, machine learning, predictive modelling etc. While most commonly used within academia, in fields such as computational biology and applied statistics, it is rapidly gaining currency in commercial areas such as quantitative finance and business intelligence.
This group has several purposes. Firstly, it is about bringing together R users to help each other with common problems, exchange knowledge and share experiences. Secondly, this group intends to spread the use of R in Bauchi and show others (also non-R users) the benefits of using R.
We plan to run an R programming Study Jam from 9th July to 20th August for 6 weeks in our local language of Hausa. Study Jams are a great opportunity to bring members of your community together to learn something new or advance their knowledge, with the help of a community facilitator. Skills learnt in this workshop can be used for personal development or career advancement.
