Join us at the next R Café Gathering Tuesday, May 7 at 12-1pm on Zoom. Register for the link.

Curious about R and would like to learn more? Have you started learning R and would like to meet other R users at UMass Chan? You're invited to the UMass Chan R Café! During these gatherings, there will be presentations on specific R libraries, tools, and concepts and time to work on your own projects and ask questions of the group. No prior experience with R required.

This month’s agenda:

  • Troubleshooting. Bring your questions!
  • Quarto

To follow along with the demonstration, you will need to download R and RStudio prior to the gathering. We recommend following Library Carpentry’s instructions for downloading R and RStudio, If you are using an UMass Chan computer, you will need to contact IT for administrative permissions to download RStudio. However, downloading R and RStudio prior to the gathering is entirely optional.

If you have any questions, please contact the R Café co-hosts, Ben Gerber ( and Tess Grynoch (
