The first official Johannesburg R Users' Meetup!

We've been working hard on obtaining sponsors for the community and setting up a support structure for knowledge sharing and connecting our members.

The first meet-up is being sponsored by Microsoft and will be taking place at their Bryanston Campus.

Catering will be provided. We are still looking to fill two speaker slots. If you have an exciting topic you wish to share please get in touch on our slack team.
