I took the liberty to start a new OTS co-learning group for R & Statistical data analysis (because this is something I am personally interested in right now, and I met someone at the last learners meetup who is as well). I just realized that I did not really discuss this with anybody else, so consider this my formal request to host this under the OTS umbrella
I don’t see anything that would speak against having this as an OTS event, however, if anybody does, please speak up now! The whole project is still in the “gathering interest” stage, so it would be quite easy to let it die or move out of OTS if I had to.
P.S: If anybody wants to join as a learner or coach, you are very much invited!
I’d love to but my calendar tells me not to add more evening activities D:
What about finding a way to add R coaches to the Python group and let learners know? Afaik, people end up using both languages for data science, and we’ve had quite a lot of people interested in this area at the Python group recently.
Hm, I though about that, but given that the Python co-learners group is already usually overbooked, I think that would get messy. I could see a point of creating a more general “Data Science” (or whatever) co-learning group that covers both Python and R and whatever else, but that too would mean a separate event on top of the existing Python co-learning. Besides, I have not been looking for R coaches yet, so at the moment the group would be extremely “co-learning” and I don’t have coaches to offer for the Python co-learning event
