R is a free software environment for statistical computing and graphics. As R enthusiasts, we are eager to bring useRs of Cambridge and surroundings together to share their experiences using R. We are aiming at organising meetings in Cambridge, including talks, mini workshops, data analysis sessions,... with an emphasis on interaction among participants.
We have set up a CambR google and Meetup groups to discuss any matter related to the CambR group and meetings or any other aspect related to R that you may want to share. Please feel free to register or get in contact with one of the organisers.
