Not sure who will be at the RPM in Dallas next week. If you're around, note that I'll be at the Social Hacking table outside the reception area at 6:00 on Monday. I'm only there for the Introduction to R workshop, so will miss the balance of the seminar.
Social hacking is a suggestion I made to the organizers. It's an informal environment where folks can bring a laptop, pose and answer questions and basically geek out for a bit. I've done similar things with data analysts here in the Triangle and it's quite a bit of fun. Something to bear in mind as a low stakes way to introduce people to R, Python, etc. at CAS events.
