We are happy to announce the next UVa R Users Group meetup, which will be held in a new location (Alderman Library Room 421) on Wednesday March 29 from 4:00-5:30PM.

We'll be hearing from TBD. No, that's not a package ... it's 5 or 6 speakers each of whom will present in a lightning talk format (10-15 minutes) about a specific problem, solution or general approach to using R.

Who are these speakers? We have a few volunteers but we're still looking for others. This will be a casual format and a great opportunity to share your work with meetup members. If you are interested in speaking, please drop me a line via the contact form on the meetup site.

Here's the lineup so far:

- Jeff Boichuk (R for marketing analysis)

- John Gulino (Google Maps API)

- Clay Ford (CDC Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) data analysis)

- Nathan Day (magrittr / purrr)

- Jameson Hinkle (bull trout population simulation)

All those who RSVP on the meetup site will be entered into the $25 Amazon gift card raffle. To win just show up, see if we pick your name and claim your prize.
