I hope this will not come as too much of a disappointment to anyone, but despite the title, this post has nothing to do with the ocean. Here “Surf” refers to the newly established Sydney R user group. While the acronym may be a little forced (it actually stands for “Sydney Users of R Forum”), as a long-time user of the R programming language for statistics and a resident of Sydney, I have signed up and will be doing my best to make it to the first meeting. Any other Sydney-siders who read the post on graphing in R and would like to learn more about R may be interested in coming along too as the group is aimed as much at beginners as old-timers like the Mule. I might even see you there.
If I do make it along to the meeting, I will report back here on what it was like.
UPDATE: I did make it along and will in fact be presenting at the next forum meeting.
