Two new R User Groups have just started up. The first us in Tallahassee, Florida, and their first meeting is on April 10. Spinning to the other side of the globe, the other is in Hobart, the capital of the Australian island state, Tasmania (their first meeting is also on April 8). It's great to see R user groups forming outside of the biggest cities now -- there's over 50 worldwide to date. You can see the upcoming meetings of these and other local R user groups at the R Community Calendar.
Revolution Analytics sponsors R user groups woldwide with annual grants -- if you're part of an existing user group, don't forget the deadline for applications is March 31. (New user groups are invited to apply though October 31.)
