Ring in the new year with a resolution to use R more! Who are we? We are a few women in Philadelphia who use R and wanted to have a friendly community to extend our R skills and network with other women R users. We learned about the international R-Ladies community and decided to try it in our city. Anyone with an interest in R is welcome. You can be an R expert or novice. When? This January will be the first meeting. We plan to have an informal mixer to introduce ourselves and find out what topics are of the most interest for future meetings. After this first meeting, we hope to start a monthly schedule of interactive workshops led by volunteers. If you have anything you want to share, a problem you are working on, or an idea for a collaborative project, we want to hear about it! If you are completely new to R, bring your computer, and we can walk you through setting up R and RStudio or answer any setup questions you have been working through.
