How to find us

Tenable has two similar looking buildings, and the meetup is in the one which _does not_ appear as Tenable Ireland on Google Maps. It's the building on John Rogerson’s Quay which has a “Gerard’s Deli” on it.

• What to bring
It's fine if you just want to see the demo, but if you want to participate bring your laptop with the latest versions of R, RStudio installed. Run this command in the RStudio console: install.packages(c("devtools", "roxygen2", "testthat")). A github account would be a bonus for the more advanced students.

• After you install the packages
You’ll need a set of development tools. On Windows, download and install Rtools, and devtools takes care of the rest. On Mac, install the Xcode command line tools. On Linux, install the R development package, usually called r-devel or r-base-dev.
