The University of Queensland and James Cook University both now have community user groups to provide support to those using R, a programming language for statistical analysis, data visualisation and more.

The UQ R Users Group (UQRUG) will aim to meet on the third Monday of each month but check UQRUG on Twitter for updates. Also check UQRUG’s Github page for more information. 

UQRUG is a monthly skill-sharing and collaborative problem-solving session for the UQ R user community. All skill levels welcome, whether you use RStudio, RKWard, Rcmdr, Jamovi or something else. 

UQ Library and the R-Ladies Brisbane Chapter are supporting UQRUG.

JCU’s CodeR Townsville group will meet each Monday, 11am–12pm. Sessions will be as follows:

  • 1st Monday of the month: Q&A session
  • 2nd Monday: R basics tutorial
  • 3rd Monday: workshop 
  • 4th Monday: anything goes.

Follow CodeR–TSV on Twitter and check its Github site for more information. 

COVID-19 update

The CodeR-TSV group meets online each Monday, 11am–12pm.

The UQRUG team is currently experimenting with a chatroom for questions. People can login in with their UQ credentials and the UQRUG team will try to answer your questions about R.
