RPIrates: The RPI R Users Group

Welcome to RPIrates: The RPI R Users Group! We are a growing community --- over 300 subscribers! --- of students, faculty and staff at Rensselaer who gather virtually and in person to support each others' use of the R open source analytics platform. In semi-weekly meetings we explain useful packages, share "feats of strength," and of course "air grievances!" 

During the Fall and Spring semester we have monthly in-person RPIrates meetings, usually the first Weds evening of the month in AE217. We also have an RPIrates email list through which we share information and ask questions: rpi-r-users@cs.lists.rpi.edu

Spring 2020 Schedule: We will be holding monthly RPIrates meetings starting Weds, 15 Jan 2020. These meetings are open to anyone interested, but some will focus on specific packages and techniques of interest to this term's MATP-4400: Intro to Data Math course.
