Happy Birthday R-Ladies Sydney!

What we'll do

R-Ladies Sydney is turning one! It has been a year filled with great events and speakers, and we’d love to kick off Year 2 in style. Let’s get together and celebrate the milestone with the ‘fun’-nest* lightning talk event yet!

Lighting talk presenters invited!** Just like our launch, the lightning talks will be short and informal. For our birthday event, the theme of the lightning talks will be:

“Fun times in R”

You could present about…

- how R makes your work fun
- how you use R to create fun things
- a fun R thing you have seen on twitter
- how you make learning R fun
- a fun R function/package

… 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’re interested in presenting by completing this form.


Doors will open at 5:45pm for 6:30pm start.

We look forward to seeing you on July 31st!

* Yes, we realise ‘funnest’ is not a word. Go with it, folks!

** In line with the R-Ladies Global mission, we invite presenters who identify as a minority gender within the R community (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender)
