R Working Group

Building our WSU R Community

At WSU we have a breadth of research questions being addressed with R, an open source statistical environment. Successful learning and use of R requires community involvement, knowledge sharing, and collaboration.

Each week we cover a a different topic spanning multiple skill levels, with additional time for questions and help. We occasionally have collaboration sessions where we work on collaborative projects, troubleshoot, and discuss research topics and R issues. Our blog contains written versions of some of our weekly presentations.

We have also hosted R group WoRk TogetheRs in the past. These are informal opportunities to work on your code with other R users at Cafe Moro in Pullman. We are sometimes joined by our sister group, the Python Working Group. Bring your computer and code – we will have power strips. You can join the ListServ to stay updated on these and other happenings in the R Working Group.
