What we're about

R is a free, open source programming language for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphical visualization, and is increasingly used in both industry and academia. The purpose of this group is to bring Santa Barbara R users together to exchange information and ideas.

Depending on the group's interests, we might also want to expand our focus to talk about other topics related to data analysis, such as Python, GIS applications, and d3.js.
