New R user community in Grenoble, France


Nine R user communities already exist in France and there is a much large number of R communities around the world. It was time for Grenoble to start its own!

The goal of the R user group is to facilitate the identification of local useRs, to initiate contacts, and to organise experience and knowledge sharing sessions. The group is open to any local useR interested in learning and sharing knowledge about R.

The group’s website features a map and table with members of the R group. Members with specific skills related to the use of R are referenced in a table and can be contacted by other members.  A gitter allows members to discuss R issues and a calendar presents the upcoming events. 

Working sessions
Monthly working sessions of two hours start with presentations or tutorials. The second part is dedicated to helping each others, meeting new people and sharing  beers and softs offered by the Grenoble Data Institute. The current program looks nice:

  • Introduction to R, F. Chuffart & F. Boyer, September 28, 2017

Additionally, presentations related to R given by researchers in local labs will be announced by the group. Experts might be invited for specific seminars occasionally.
