Summer is finally here! Join R-Ladies Chicago to celebrate! We are a group of women and non-binary individuals who code with the programming language R and support each other on our learning journey.

• What we'll do:
We'll be tasting and rating a few wines (and non-alcoholic drinks too!), analyzing the data from our ratings, and learning how to make a data visualization in R. Wine consumption is absolutely optional --we'll have non-alcoholic beverages & pizza too.

There will be no formal technical talk at this meeting; rather, this is a time to network with fellow R-Ladies while doing a collaborative coding activity. This is part of our “social” Meetups, focused on networking and idea exchange.

• Collaborative Coding:
We know the idea of coding with others can be daunting, but this is a safe space and everyone is welcome (even if you do not know how to use R yet). This will be a relaxed environment and a good chance to meet some of your fellow R-Ladies, so please do not feel like you do not know enough to join in.

5:45-6:15 -- Food, Wine Tasting, Intros & Announcements
6:10-7:15 -- Collaborative Coding Activity
7:15-7:35 -- Groups will share what they did with the rest of the group (if they want to!)
7:35-8:00 -- Socializing/Networking/Hanging out

Q: Are men welcome to attend this event?
A: Our primary mission is to encourage more women and non-binary individuals to get involved in the R community. ***As such, we strongly encourage that all men who attend this event have a female or non-binary sponsor. Please contact [masked] if you have questions.***

Additionally, please help us by spreading the word about R-Ladies, and by being respectful of the fact that this event is primarily for women/non-binary/female-identifying individuals.

• What to bring
Laptop or notebook if you can! Wifi is available and live-tweeting is encouraged.

• Important to know
We expect all attendees to abide & be governed by our community code of conduct. Please take a moment to review our R-Ladies Global code of conduct (particularly if this is your first time attending!):
