MilanoR is a free event, open to all R users and enthusiasts or those who wish to learn more about R. The meeting consists of two talks (this time one about big data and and one about statistical learning) + a free buffet and networking time
Info, dates and topics of our five Autumn R Courses: from programming to data manipulation, from statistics to data mining, everything with R starting with R for Beginners course.
A MilanoR meeting is an occasion to bring together R users from the Milano area to share R tips and experience: the next one will be Thursday, October 27th. We are looking for volunteers to present at the next meeting: if you feel you have something to input or you can recommend someone, please contact us!
R is growing faster, our community is growing as well: that's why we provided MilanoR with a brand new website, more functional to find our R resources.
MilanoR staff is organizing the next MilanoR meeting.
The meeting will be in Milano by mid-December. A typical MilanoR meeting consists of two talks of about 25 minutes to give plenty of room for sharing your R experiences, discussions and exchange of ideas.

Contrary to general expectations, or at least to my expectations, the logical and analytical concepts behind statistics are rather difficult to understand by engineers. In general, despite their heavy background in maths and their above average fluency with computer programming, there seems to be a broken bridge with the statistical world and often they prefer to stay in the safe "math bank" of the river, despite the road to statistical fluency is shorter than they think.
