R Working Group

Building our WSU R Community

SPRING 2018 term the R Working Group sessions are on Wednesdays at 12:00 pm, in PACCAR 202. Check out our blog!

R group WoRk TogetherRs are Monday and Friday. Work on your code with other R users and use what you learn or see from the sessions.The South Side work together is Mondays at 1-2:30 in Abelson 312B. The East Side work together is Fridays at 2-3:30 pm, in FSHN 354.

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.
