Did you know that there is a R users group at the University of Manchester? “R at University of Manchester” (R.U.M.), is an R User group open to all staff and students using R at The University of Manchester with regular meetings on the first Monday of each month.
Led by Reka Solymosi (School of Law) and Heather Robinson (Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health), the R.U.M Group brings together R users of all levels, with interests in diverse fields from across the University to exchange tips, ideas and knowledge. In monthly meetings, topics related to data handling, manipulation and presentation are covered through short talks, and provide an open and relaxed forum. All are welcome to attend, and total proficiency in R is not a requirement! It is recommended but not essential that users bring a laptop to follow the session. The meetings are followed by a 30 minute R surgery in which the group will aim to troubleshoot any problematic code you may wish to bring along.
