Two new local R user groups to report this week.
In Turkey, the Ankara R Users Group has just started up. No meetings are scheduled yet, so be sure to suggest a meeting time/location when you sign up.
The Toronto-based R Matlab Users group focuses on financial services applications. Created by Bryan Downing (who also produces the QuantLabs blog), the group will hold virtual meetings for R and Matlab users in the financial services industry worldwide. There will also be social meetups in the Toronto financial district, the first of which will be held July 9.
