RPIrates: The RPI R Users Group

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: rpi-r-users@cs.lists.rpi.edu

Spring 2024 Schedule: During the Spring 2024 term we will be holding monthly RPIrates meetings at 6p in AE217, with pizza, salad and other goodies!  You can find the RPIrates schedule interleaved with TWed Talks and FOCI LLM Users Group meetings at https://tw.rpi.edu/about/twed

RPIrates and Data INCITE Tutorials: Watch for our growing list of R tutorials!

Ask us about RPI R Bootcamps! Occasionally the Rensselaer IDEA will host an R Bootcamp. These are two- or three-day, day-long, intensive,interactive deep-dives in the R language and platform, structured to accommodate the needs of the RPI research community.
