Next Meetup

Dirty Data! R-Ladies October meetup
Hi Los Angeles R-Ladies! We'll be having our next meetup on October 27th at 12pm on campus at UCLA. We’ll be talking about dirty data: whether messiness comes from the format of the data, converting data types from one to another, or if the underlying data itself isn’t how you would like. We will cover tidy data and its concepts and packages, as well as workflows to figure out what kind of dirtiness you’re seeing. Our focus will primarily be on methods and packages, but we will give a quick overview of the underlying statistical principles of missingness and outliers. As always we welcome people regardless of gender, but our group is intended for those who identify with a gender minority (trans women, cis women, trans men, non-binary, other). We expect all attendees to abide by our Code of Conduct. See you there! Katie Leap [masked] Location details: We'll be in room 101 of the LaKretz Garden Pavilion, located in the botanical garden at the corner of Tiverton Dr and Charles E Young Dr South. The best way to get to room 101 is by taking the path off of Tiverton Dr into the garden. The closest visitor parking is parking structure 2 and it is $3 per hour. There is also street parking on Hilgard Ave and the surrounding neighborhood.

    What we're about


    The R community suffers from an underrepresentation of minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender) in every role and area of participation, whether as leaders, package developers, conference speakers, conference participants, educators, or users.

    R-Ladies LA is a network of R practitioners in Los Angeles. Our goals are to provide a supportive and encouraging network for R users who identify as a gender minority and to promote learning and collaboration in the R community. We are emphatically LGBTQ friendly and open to anyone interested in programming in R, from experts to novices. Join us!

    Community Policies & Code of Conduct: the leadership, mentoring & teaching roles within this Community are held exclusively by people who identify as a gender minority (cis male speakers may be allowed/invited as one-off guests in exceptional circumstances at the leadership team's discretion). Due to unexpected demand, we have opened learning participation to all genders, dependent on initial and on-going vetting by the leadership team. However, the stated priority of the R-Ladies communities is the development & support specifically of those identifying with a gender minority, and we therefore reserve the right to guard this interest through whatever measures the leadership team deem appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies is expected to fully respect each other, the mandate of this community, and the goodwill on which R-Ladies is founded, or face expulsion/a penalty of any form, at the discretion of the leadership team.

    Photos, Films and all other media/recordings: photographs and/or video/other media will be taken at events held by this community. By taking part in an R-Ladies event you grant the community organizers full rights to use the images resulting from the photography/video filming/media, and any reproductions or adaptations of the images for publicity, fundraising or other purposes to help achieve the community’s aims. This might include (but is not limited to), the right to use them in their printed and online publicity, social media, press releases and funding applications. If you do not wish to be recorded in these media please inform a community organizer.
