Great news! Johannesburg second R Users's Meet-up has just been booked! The theme for this meet-up is Machine Learning and R.

You're not going to want to miss this one!

Our previous meet-up was 50+ attendees with 15 on the wait list so we suggest you RVSP early.

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.

Machine Learning Hackathon & Challenges

We've had some interest for people who'd like to attend a training/hackathon day and we are hard at working scheduling something here.

The idea of the workshop is to get members of various experience levels with R working together on challenges. We might even be launching some bounty-challenges from South African Corporates

If you'd like to attend this workshop or would like to get notified when it's taking place (Will take place in Discovery Health/Insure Premises 3rd week of June)
