The Budapest Users of R Network, which is the only one active Hungarian R User Group so far, was founded a bit more than a year ago, and I was really happy to see more than 200 registrations before its first anniversary. The RUG proved to be active and popular in Hungary, which makes me feel extremely proud as a founder — thanks to Szilárd Pafka, organizer of DataScience.LA, who urged me last year at useR! 2013 to start a Hungarian R meetup.

This spring, I was thinking about inviting an international guest speaker to celebrate the increasing success and popularity of the R community, and I made a lucky hit:

After a few mails with Romain, everything was set, and we agreed on to have an Rcpp11 talk in the near future at Budapest, Hungary:

I really enjoyed Romain’s talk, which was not only useful for the 50+ attendees, but it was also fun even for the novice R users. Please find a Hungarian summary with bunch of photos at (the Hungarian R site), or head directly to the recording of the talk in English:

And now I am extremely happy to announce our next speaker:

So I suggest you to RSVP now to reserve your seat, and join us on the 27th of November at Budapest, where Matt Dowle will give a very exciting talk on fast and flexible data manipulation. Besides an authentic introduction to data.table, free pizzas and beers will be also provided as usual 🙂
