Event description

Description

The R language is open source environment for statistical computing and graphics. The R community has enjoyed significant growth with more than two million users worldwide. A broad range of organizations have adopted the R language as a data science platform, including biotech, finance, research and high technology industries. There is a growing network of R User Groups enabling techniques and new developments to be shared. The nearest R User Group to Portsmouth meets in London once a quarter. The usual venue is in the City but events are also held at UCL and LSE. The User Group provides a forum for business and industry users to mingle with academics and PhD students, sharing problems and solutions.


The Portsmouth R User Group will provide R users on the South Coast with a similar opportunity. We are teaming up with Mango Business Solutions (who run the London R Group amongst others) so that we can provide a varied and interesting series of talks on the use of R.


The format of the evening begins with registration and networking from 6.00 pm. Talks begin with an introduction at 6.20 followed by two or three 20 minute talks with questions. After the talks there is another chance to network or discuss the presentations again with the speakers. The evening would draw to a close around 7.30-8.00 pm.
