Lansing Area R Users Group (laRUG) with Data Science

The Lansing Area R Users Group (laRUG) brings together R users in the Lansing area for discussions on data science (analysis and predictive modeling), big data, and all things R. This group provides a relaxed environment to exchange ideas and discuss R. Whether you are new to R (and programming), a statistician, or an advanced user, we are the group for you.

Monthly Meetups

We hold monthly meetings on the second Monday of the month from 7-9pm at the Biggby Coffee in front of Dunhams and the Secretary of State (SoS) Office Lansing, Michigan Google Map next to Ranney Park (Plus Code: PFMX+H5 Lansing, Lansing Charter Twp, MI).

The first hour of the meetup is devoted to a specific topic while the second hour is more of an open question and answer session – or it might be a continuation of the first hour. The discussions range from specific R functions and libraries, to general data science and analytics topics, to open discussion and help sessions. Everyone is welcomed to attend the meetings, bring questions and ideas, and participate or observe.
