There's another new R user group on the US West Coast, this time in Portland, Oregon. The Portland R User Group will hold their first meeting at the Lucky Labrador Brew Pub on Tuesday, August 17. If you're in the Portland/Vancouver area, come along for beeRs and conversation with other useRs in your area.
Incidentally, there are so many new user group announcements these days that I've added a new category to the blog to keep up with them. Check out the user groups section for all the R user group news.
