Wow, it's a big week for new R User Groups. Larry D'Agostino has started up a new R user group based in Dallas, Texas (USA). It's just getting started, and Larry posted the following request on the r-help mailing list:
I would like to know if there is anyone like me interested in an R User Group in Dallas, TX. David Smith at REvolutions was kind enough to help getting it started.
My first thought would to have some informal meet ups at some local Dallas locations to discuss overall goals, ideas, wishes of the RUG. The next step would be to nominate and elect a leadership team. Then get the ball rolling to a more formal meet up process with presentations, workshops, and tutorial sessions.
If you're in the Dallas area, why not join in and help Larry get the ball rolling? Sign up at the link below.
