The inaugural meeting of the Manchester R user group will be on 7 February 2013. We’ll meet from 6:30 pm for a 7:00 pm start, with three short talks with breaks for discussion and refreshments. If you are new to R there will also be a short tutorial from 6:00 pm until 6:30 pm. If you don’t know what R is or are just getting started, then come along and learn the basics.
