Our first speaker will be Dean Attali, who will be showing us how he scraped attendance data from the 2017 useR conference to figure out what makes a talk popular. The talk will be supported by a Shiny app to showcase how Shiny can be used to easily explore a dataset.
The second speaker is Morgan Taschuk from OICR. Software produced for research, published and otherwise, suffers from a number of common problems that make it difficult or impossible to run outside the original institution or even off the primary developer’s computer. Her talk presents ten simple rules to make such software robust enough to be run by anyone, anywhere, and thereby delight your users and collaborators.
If you have a talk idea, post it in the Issues section of the Official GitHub repo for this group: https://github.com/gta-r-user-group/gtar
