R opportunities and resources
OEB is organizing an R study group: Studying, Originating, and Understanding R Coding Executables (SOURCE). There is a sign-up sheet for a mailing list that includes a survey of what people are interested in learning about.
I have also installed RStudio in the BCRC after Sheila Patek requested it for her class. I hadn't seen it before -- it looks pretty useful, although I haven't had a chance to play with it much. Check it out!
