Revolution at JSM

August 1, 2010

(This article was first published on Revolutions, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

If you’re in Vancouver for the Joint Statistics Meetings, come by and meet the Revolution team. (Revolution is a Silver Sponsor of JSM.) We’re at Booth 527 of the Exhibition Hall (near the poster displays) showing the new and upcoming features of Revolution R, and we’ve got lots of R-related goodies to give away.

If you’re new to R, want to learn about the enhancements in Revolution R, or just want to get together with other R users over drinks and snacks, why not come along to our "Introduction to Revolution R" mixer? I’ll give a short presentation about R and Revolution R at 4PM on Wednesday in Ballroom A of the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel, and then it’s happy hour through 6PM. There’s also a special gift for the first 100 guests.

On Wednesday, Revolution’s Bill Constantine will be giving a talk about a joint project with Merck, creating an open-source GUI for group-sequential trial design with the gsdesign package.

I’ll also be attending the ASA Statistical Computing mixer on Monday night. This isn’t a Revolution event (we’re just providing a door prize) but it’s another great place to meet other R users.

I hope to see you there — come along and say hi!
