List of R conferences and useR groups

Filed under: Conferences, R — Tags: , — csgillespie @ 9:05 pm

Recently Steph Locke asked on twitter if there was a list of R conferences. After some googling, all that I came up was a list of useR groups maintained by Microsoft. While the list was lengthy, it was missing a few groups (and twitter handles). So the other night I created a github repository listing conferences/groups.

If you spot any missing groups or conferences, feel free to make a pull request at the GitHub Repository.
