R Working Group

Building our WSU R Community

FALL 2017 term the R Working Group meets on Wednesdays at 12:00 pm, in PACCAR 202. Check out our blog!

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 a different topic will be covered, spanning multiple skill levels, with additional time for questions and help. Once a month we have trouble shooting sessions where we work as a group to solve and discuss R issues.
