R is an open source data analysis, data visualization and statistical programming language. Use of R is rising exponentially in the business and academic arenas and it is used by companies such as Google, Pfizer, Merck, Bank of America and Shell. SheffieldR is an opportunity for anyone with an interest in R to meet up, listen to a couple of interesting presentations on R implementations and then network over a drink. The events are free and anyone, at whatever level of R skill, is welcome to attend.
We rely on members of the Sheffield R community to speak at our meetups and try to offer a mix of "beginners" and "expert" level talks. If you'd like to share a 15 minute informal slide-talk on a topic of your choosing (broadly 'something cool I've done related to R that others would benefit from hearing about') then we'd love to hear from you!
