R

The first satRdays event will take place in Budapest on September 3rd:

This is a very exciting project with great interest from the R and more general data science community — in the past short 2 months (since we opened registration for the conference):

  • More than 160 persons signed up and paid for attendance from 17 countries so far (around 50-50% mix of academic and industry tickets, 30-70% mix of foreign and Hungarian attendees)

  • We received almost 40 voluntary talk proposals in a few weeks of time while the CfP was open

  • 25 selected & awesome speakers agreed on to present  at the conference

I’d like to see this take off, similar to SQL Saturdays.
