What we're about

The Cardiff R User Group (CaRdiff) is aimed at folks who use R or are looking to get started with it.

R is an open source language for analysing data, statistics, visualisation and much, much more. It's a great language to have under your belt - if you're a non-techy it extends your Excel and SAS skills and for techies it allows easy data processing and presentation on the front-end.

The group meets up fortnightly to cover topics on-demand and has regular events with presenters from the group and beyond. We're also very welcome to suggestions on extra events.

Whether brand new to R and curious, or an Rfficianado, this group is for you!

A laid-back get together to discuss aspects of R and data science, and get help on any current data challenges you're having. You don't have to come along every fortnight but if you're looking to learn R, commiserate over the latest stumbling block, or help others learn R, we'd love to meet you!
