What we're about

We are the local R user group for Salt Lake City, UT. R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics (http://www.r-project.org/). Our goal is to support and share R experience and knowledge among its users in the SLC and University of Utah community. We would like to hear how you use and enjoy the R language and statistical programming environment.

Check us out on Github (https://github.com/slc-rug)! And check out the R Consortium and R Community Code of Conduct (https://wiki.r-consortium.org/view/R_Consortium_and_the_R_Community_Code_of_Conduct).
