Edit: The July 25, 2015 meet up will be focused on the Week 1 course materials ( and quiz. Lecture videos are in "2 - Lectures" directory, the quiz at the root. These unofficial materials are being made available in advance of the official Coursera materials and subject to revision at Coursera's discretion.


Anybody interested in a support group to get through the Coursera John Hopkin's R Programming section ( )?

This meetup will follow the August 3 - 29 schedule (at the link above).

We'll meet at Panera next to Trader Joes just north of I-84 - and near the train, so highly accessible by transit.

There will be four-ish meetups, one prior to each of the four topics. The four topics are as follows (from the Coursera website):

• Week 1: Overview of R, R data types and objects, reading and writing data

• Week 2: Control structures, functions, scoping rules, dates and times

• Week 3: Loop functions, debugging tools

• Week 4: Simulation, code profiling

The first meetup will be Sat. July 18th, prior to the first topic.

The course suggests a book, and requires you to setup a GitHub account, if you don't already have one.
