What we’re about
This meetups has its roots as one of the first (large) R meetups in the US and in the World. It was founded in 2009 under the name LA R Users Group, it was also the very first data meetup in the Los Angeles area and later on it became part of DataScience.LA (2014-2021). In July 2021 we moved to Texas and changed our meetup name.
Real Data Science is about methods you can apply in your practice/business applications and not about some overhyped technology that is experimental at best and broken at worse (and in fact of very limited use to you). Many technologies labelled "big data", "AI", "self driving" etc. have been more of the latter. For real world data science applications R is simply the best tool one can use.
