First Inaugural RUG Meeting

Thursday June 10th 2021, 5 p.m.

The inaugural meeting of the R User Group (RUG) will be on June 10th at 5 p.m.. RUG seeks to connect users of the statistical programming language R in the greater Harvard community. We look forward to welcoming all those interested in R, from beginners to experts! We will be presenting a short presentation of some unique applications of R and discussing what members would like to see in the group.

We have also uploaded the recording of our first meeting to our YouTube channel. If you were unable to join us for the live meeting, we hope that this recording will serve as an introduction to RUG at HDSI.

Our slide-deck is available online on GitHub here:
