Slides from the weeks R and Open Statistical Programming Meetups

There were two great meetups this week, and I want to share the slides with everyone.

The first slides are from the R for Beginners session at the Greater Boston Area R Users Group. I am so glad that a useR group finally did this, and that it was well attended. In fact, I think it ws double the usual attendance for this group, and there was a waiting list! Also good to know that they are planning another R for Beginnners session later in the year. Here is a link to the slides

The recently renamed NYC Open Statistical Programming Meetup which is run by the recently married and employed Drew Conway had a talk by Wes McKinney. Wes gave a thought excellent talk on the things he is working on in Python and some thought provoking opinions on both Python and R. That was a brave thing to do since most of those in attendance are primarily R users. I do not personally agree with Wes on some of those opinions, but his presentation has already resulted in a healthy discussion of the issue. Here is a link to the Slides
