About the Event

Introduction to R and Organizing Team [10:00 AM - 12:00 PM]


R is a free and open programming language for statistical computing, data analysis, and graphical visualization. Along with this powerful software, comes a dynamic and vast community. The KampalR user Group seeks to bring this community together to share ideas, discuss R related topics, and provide direction for new and experienced users.

Although R was primarily used in academia, it is rapidly growing in use by major companies as well and is becoming increasingly more visible. One of the major strengths of R is the community-based nature of the project. From the original development to current maintenance and development, R is maintained by a growing community of members. This community is what we seek to foster with this group. We are committed to bringing together local R users in Kampala, Uganda to exchange knowledge and information in an informal setting in the hopes of creating new ideas and directions for users.
