useR! 2014 is just about two weeks away, and I am very much looking forward to meeting R users from around the world.  This is just a great time to catch up with old friends, hopefully make some new friends, and talk about R and R user groups. The number of R user groups continues to increase. Over the past six months, new groups have formed in Chennai (India), Exeter (UK), Miami (FL), Durham (NH), Albany (NY) and Charlotte (NC). There are now 141 user groups listed in Revolutions User Group Directory.

At Revolution Analytics we are always looking for new ways to support R user groups and to do what we can spot trends and highlight ways that R users help each other and share information. For example, many R user groups post the slides from talks and presentations on their websites. Taken together these make a considerable source of reference material with respect to what's hot in R. Some groups are beginning to user their sites to present training material and share code. For example, have a lool at Resources page on the NH UseRs site, and the GitHub code on "EXTRACTION DE DONNÉES SUR LE WEB" posted by R Addicts Paris.

If you are going to UCLA for UserR! please stop by Revolution Analytics table to chat. (I'll be the guy in the hat). We would very much like to hear your ideas about R user groups and what more we may be able to do to help.
