R Working Group

Welcome to the R Working Group !

We’re thrilled to announce the return of the R Working Group for the Spring 2024 semester, and we’re excited to welcome you on board! Whether you’re new to R and eager to learn or an experienced enthusiast ready to share your insights, you’ve found the perfect community.

The R Working Group is the R community at WSU. It serves as a peer-to-peer learning network for students and faculty members to exchange R knowledge, techniques, and troubleshooting through our weekly meetings and workshops. Each week, we cover a different R topic suitable for various skill levels, and you can find demo codes on our Teams workspace. 

Our weekly meetings will be held every Wednesday from 12:10 PM to 1:00 PM, taking place at the Plant Science Building 405 and also accessible via Zoom. To receive Zoom links and updates, please subscribe to our email list. For access to session recordings or if you have any questions, feel free to reach out to Meijing Liang, our current Head Moderator, at meijing.liang@wsu.edu.

We look forward to a productive and engaging Spring semester with you!
