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.


We now have a Slack workspace!

  • Howdy y’all,

    The R User Group (RUG) created a Slack channel! Our aim is to make discussion about technical topics and short communications more accessible among our members in between RUG meetings. This will be a space for members to get help with R problems (errors, understanding output, how to do a task, etc.) and discuss R-adjacent topics (e.g. “What do y’all think of this new package?!”, “I wish R had a meme generator”*). The RUG facilitators will frequent the Slack group and answer questions when possible but we see this as a space for community discussion, rather than a virtual help desk with us. We encourage folks to answer each other’s questions- especially if you’re new to R, as this is a great way to learn! Conversation on Slack should conform to the GC policies on technology use and should remain on topic. We’ll remove any discussion that is unproductive or off topic. Official updates and RUG news will be disseminated through the Commons.

    How to join: In order to join, reply to this thread and an administrator can add you! We are responsive, and will usually get back to you within a day. For more info on joining Slack workspaces, see here.

    Looking forward to Slacking with y’all!


    Connor, Yuxiao, and Di
