R-Ladies Sydney launch--- Lightning talks

What we'll do

We are super excited to announce that R-Ladies Sydney will launch on June 20th 2018. For our first event, we want everyone to meet someone new and learn something new so we plan to host a series of lightning talks. You are all invited to participate! Lightning talks are only 5-6 min long and can be about anything. You could talk about…

Here is a cool R related thing you might not know about
My favourite R package
I use R in my work because...
The most useful/fun thing I have learned in R recently
My favourite R learning resource is…
Why I ditched excel and learned R (and changed my life forever)

… you get the idea. Talks will be informal; slides are optional. We encourage participation from everyone (beginners through experts; people who speak about R all the time and those don’t love to speak in public about anything).

Let us know that you would like to present by completing this form.


Doors will open at 6:30pm for a 7pm start. Babes in arms welcome.

We also encourage you all to read (and contribute to) the R-Ladies Sydney blog- https://rladiessydney.org/. We want to make the blog a space where everyone can share ideas so even R-Ladies who are unable to attend the meetup can benefit from the group. With this in mind, it would be great if talk presenters would be willing to contribute to the blog. In addition, if the idea of a lightning talk terrifies you, but writing a blog about your R journey doesn't sound awful, we would love to hear from you.

Check out this post by Dani (https://rladiessydney.org/posts/contribute-a-post/) re how to contribute. Feel free to tweet us, or email [masked] with your blog ideas.

We look forward to meeting you on the 20th!
