At tomorrow's meeting of the Bay Area R User's Group, ACM Software Systems award winner and R Core Group member John Chambers will give a keynote talk on the R language. The talk, titled Interfaces and Paradigms, will explore choices for computing with data with visits along the way to the history of R, reasons for the growth of R, and the importance of different concepts for the computational tasks.
Before the meeting REvolution Computing is hosting a cocktail reception where you can mingle over drinks with fellow R users. The reception is part of the Predictive Analytics World conference, but it's free to attend if you're coming for the user group meeting. The reception will be held starting at 6:30PM in the Gold Ballroom of the Palace Hotel (right next to the venue for the R user group meeting). RSVPs are requested at the link below.
