Next Connecticut R Users Group Meetup is May 15th. #rstats

We have confirmed the room at the Yale Statistics Department on Hillhouse Avenue for May 15th for our next Rusers Meetup. The meeting with start with two short lighting talks and be followed by an R-Lab similar to the very successful Stats-Lab that Dr. Emerson has done at Yale for a number of years now.

The first presentation will be by Rajarshi Guha with a lighting talk exploring twitter data with R+basic sentiment analysis. Twitter feeds are a great way to try out different types of analysis and packages like Jeff Gentry's Twitter-R package make it relatively easy to do.

The second presentation will be by Illya Mowerman with an example of using logistic regression in R to predict leads and converters in Marketing. Regression really forms the foundation of a lot of predictive analytics so this should be interesting.

If you have a data set you want the group to play with or some code that you could use help with bring it to the meeting and we will work through it as a group in the R-Lab portion of the meetup.
