I am a founding member of the Montreal R User group.

We (the founding member of the group: Corey, Zofia, Eric and myself) offer a now popular introductory series of R workshops.  The series consists of three 2-3 hours segments (single day or over a few days).  The series introduces users to the power of R and helps them overcome the steepest part of the R learning curve (getting started).  By the end of the series, all users will be able to load their data into R, produce a beautiful plot and are completely addicted to their new R powers.

Contact us for scheduling a workshop series at your institution.
I have provided R workshops on a diversity more advanced topics.

I have a number of useful R functions on gitHub.

Here are a number of books on R, from the group’s Mendeley library:
