Here at Revolution Analytics, we're proud to have been a part of fostering local user groups for R users around the world. Last year we sponsored more than 40 groups, with representation from every continent around the world. And we're thrilled to see the continued growth in user groups: this time last year there about 50 R user groups; now, there's nearly 100.
And so we're pleased to be able to continue our support with the 2013 Local R User Group Sponsorship Program. As in previous years, the program provides a cash grant (with levels depending on the maturity and size of the group), giveaways for group members (including T-shirts and other branded goodies), and promotion for user groups via this blog, Twitter, and our monthly newsletter. If you're a group leader, all you need to do is complete the application form. We especially encourage R users in cities without a user group to consider starting one up, and we've provided some tips to help get a new user group started.
