This Thursday (Jan 24th), 5:30pm, the good folks at Wajam are hosting a meetup of the Montreal R User Group.
The event will be at Bolidea at 4115 St Laurent, Montréal, QC. Be sure to RSVP.
From Benjamin Rollert:
This is an opportunity for people interested in R to hang out at our office, eat pizza and drink beer! We’ll also show some of the cool stuff we’ve done with R as part of live applications for our business intelligence.
Hope to see you there!
After a bit of a summer lull, the Montreal R User Group is meeting up again! We’re trying out a new venue this time. Notman House is the home of the web in Montreal. They hold hackathons and other tech user group meetups, and they are all around great people in an all around great space in downtown Montreal.
Our meetup will feature R super-user Etienne Low-Decarie, who will give a walk through of some of the most powerful packages in R, many of which were built by rstats rock star Hadley Wickham.
I will also kick off the meetup with a short session on how R is revolutionizing data science in academia, journalism, business and beyond.
- November 14th, 7pm at 51 Sherbrooke W.
- BYOL&D (Bring Your Own Laptop & Data)
Don’t forget to RSVP. Hope to see you there!
The Montreal R User Group is now official. You can join the group by visiting the meetup site.
The group has existed since 2010 in a narrower incarnation as the BGSA R/Stats Workshop Series. Previous workshops have featured invited facilitators on topics such as Causal Analysis, GLMs, GAMs, Multi-model inference, Phylogenetic analysis, Bayesian modeling, Meta-analysis, Ordination, Programming and more. Our goal is to broaden the scope of the workshops to incorporate topics from a wide variety of applied fields.
We are kicking off with a meetup on Monday, March 19th. At the meeting, I will be facilitating a workshop on building and estimating Maximum Likelihood models and doing model selection using AIC.
We look forward to seeing you at the next meetup!
