What we're about

UI RUG is a group of R enthusiasts based in the Department of Statistics University of Ibadan Nigeria. We have held several meetups since the year 2011 at the University of Ibadan. We have been instrumental in training several people including staff, students, researchers, data scientists and industry practitioners on the use of R. We are the pioneer R trainers for all Nigeria's University faculties at the National Mathematical Centre Abuja (NMC) since 2015. Our lead facilitator Olalekan Obisesan was a trainer on 'Environmental Statistics with R' at the AIMS South Africa Muizenberg in 2017. We initially had a group called the 'R moving train' on facebook and now on Twitter as UI R Users Group.
The main purpose of our group is to spread the usage of R across Nigeria and Africa as a whole.
Joining is open to students from all faculties and academics staff from various backgrounds and institutions within and outside Nigeria. We are also open to developers, designers, analysts and researchers.

At our various events participants will learn among several others, 'Big Data and Data Science with R', 'Data Mining with R', 'Exploratory Data Analysis with R', 'Multivariate Analysis with R', 'Machine Learning with R' , 'Environmental Statistics with R' ,'Computational Statistics with R' and 'General Statistical Theory and Applications with R'.
