Welcome to RPIrates: The RPI R Users Group! We are a growing community --- over 350 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; during COVID we are meeting virtually, via Webex or Zoom. We also have an RPIrates email list through which we share information and ask questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
Spring 2023 Schedule: During the Spring 2023 term we will be holding monthly RPIrates meetings at 6p on the second Tuesday of each month in AE217, with pizza, salad and other goodies!
