RBarMUN

R-Bar at Memorial University

RBar at Memorial University

RBar is a weekly scientific programming study group where we tackle R issues in a cooperative group setting. We welcome people from all disciplines, across all experience and skill levels, including undergraduates, graduates, faculty, and researchers!

Do you have a suggestion for a future event? Would you like to host a tutorial, workshop, or demonstration? Are you willing to share a piece of code that you think might be useful to others, or a solution to a common problem? Let us know on our facebook page! Also follow us on Twitter @RBarMUN!
