6:00 pm: R in the Wild: A Safari Adventure through Industry - Nic Crane from Mango Solutions

###

Whilst R is sometimes known for its use in academia, the adoption of open source technologies in industry is becoming more and more common. In this talk, I will address some of the most interesting ways I’ve seen R being used in production environments, the different methods that can be used to deploy R (including Shiny), and overcoming common misconceptions about R and the use of open-source technology.

Nic Crane is a data scientist, a big supporter of open source technology, and total R nerd. She works at Mango Solutions, a data science services company, who provide complex analysis solutions, consulting, training, and application development for some of the most well-known companies in the world. Mango Solutions are proud sponsors of Oxford R.

Oxford RUG is thrilled that Mango Solutions is our new sponsors. Thanks to their generosity, there will be pizza from Franco Manca and wine after the meeting. Since this is the first (but hopefully not the last) time we are doing this, it would be good to get a sense of how much pizza to order. Please RSVP for pizza by filling out the link in the Agenda by 5pm on Monday Dec 4th.
