Today, I am packing up the car and heading south to my old home, Washington, DC, for the useR! 2010 conference, which is being held at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Incidentally, where I was an intern in the Information Technology Lab during college.
If you are not able to make the trip to Gaithersburg, MD; fear not, through the hard work of Szilard Pafka (organizer of the LA R user’s group) and Katherine Mullen, coordinator of useR!, I will be hosting many of the conference’s keynotes, lectures and several of the panel discussions at the Video Rchive. It may be several days before all of the videos are uploaded, but be sure to check back at the Rchive next week for any updates.
If you are attending useR!, do try to make it to our panel discussion on starting a local R users group in your area (Thursday, 3:25pm in the Red Room). The panel includes several prominent
charactersmembers of the R community, and should be a very entertaining and informative discussion.
Hope to see you there!
