RUG — R User’s Group

R User’s Group (i.e., RUG) is a place for newbies and experts alike to learn and work together on projects using the statistical programming language, R. Do you want to learn the best practices for creating a reproducible workflow but don’t know where to begin? Struggling to figure out the best methods for wrangling a messy data set? Want to build a clean and professional website using free and open-source tools? We can do all this and more using R! Join us as we learn how to unlock the full potential of the R ecosystem.

Open to people of all skill levels, disciplines, and backgrounds.


RUG is winding down for the summer

  • Howdy y’all!

    I don’t know about y’all, but I need a break this summer. RUG is going to take a break as well and will resume in the fall. I thought I had one more meeting in me, but some last-minute lab problems have made it too difficult to host a last meeting. In light of everything, this year has been a fun one with y’all! I truly appreciate everyone showing up to meetings and asking questions on the Slack. It warms my heart knowing that there is a supportive R community at the GC. While we won’t be having meetings, feel free to continue discussions on the Slack! I will lurk occasionally.

    I also have some bittersweet news. This was my last semester as a Digital Fellow! I got a research assistantship opportunity that I couldn’t pass up, so I will no longer be the head honcho of RUG.  Yuxiao and one of the new batch of fellows will take over and take RUG to great new places. It has truly been a pleasure leading the group and interacting with everybody. I look forward to seeing folks at RUG meetings, not as a leader, but as a participant!
