The RDataMining group has 6000 members today, 5 July 2014.
Created in August 2011, this group has developed into a big community with 6000 member within three years. Since its creation, many members have shared their knowledge and experiences on R and data mining in the group, such as posting useful online resources that they came across, or the examples that they made by themselves. Without their contributions, this group would not have grown into this size today.
Many group members have asked questions and seek help on technical problems, which also contribute a lot to discussions. Those questions incurred many helpful responses and insightful solutions, provided by more experienced group members. Some examples are discussions on good books for learning R and data mining, best way to determine a threshold, and visualization of decision trees. Such discussions are fantastic for knowledge sharing and group learning, from which many members (including myself) have benefited a lot.
Big thanks to those who have responded to above questions and discussions, helping other group members and sharing their knowledge and experiences. I appreciate their time and efforts on helping others out.
Thanks also go to job advertisers or group members who shared job vacancies in the group. Many group members are interested in not only improving their knowledge and skill set, but also in new opportunities.
Last but not least, I’d also thank members for inviting their friends and colleagues to this group, or mentioning this group to people who might be interested in it. Without their recommendations, the group would not be of 6000 members today.
Thanks to all members for their contributions. I look forward to more discussions and interactions with you.
If you are not a member yet, please join us for knowledge sharing with 6000 members.
P.S. I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce two other professional groups that I manage, which are respectively for Australia-wide and Canberra-based data miners.
AusDM: Data Mining & Analytics
This is a group for the AusDM conference, and is also a forum for Australia-wide data miners and analysts to exchange ideas and share experiences.
Canberra Data Miners
We are Canberra data miners. We get together on weekends for bush walking and experience sharing on data mining and analytics. Join us to have fun, get fit, and share knowledge.
