Hi everyone!

Have you ever had the thought: "I wonder how my friend is coding!" or "How would other people code this?" or "What's their favourite R tip?". Well, this is the time to share our coding thoughts and tips! To celebrate our two years anniveRsary we would like to bring out the R diversity of our community. We would like YOU TO SHARE WITH US YOUR FAVOURITE BITS OF R and we are organising a PANEL DISCUSSION with past speakers and other R experts from industry and academia!


1. SHARE WITH US HERE or via email to [masked], an R/R Studio function or functionality; a way to build a model or to visualise your data that you use in your workflow or that simply you really like; your favourite R moment or tips from our events! You can also add something about yourself and in which field you use R for. The format can be one slide, one R/Rmd script or anything that works for you! See two examples here .

2. PRESENT IT at our event in 5 MINUTES. This will be a great opportunity to share your R tips, ask for feedback to the audience and practice your public speaking in a friendly and non-judgemental environment!

3. WE WILL CREATE AN R-LADIES MELBOURNE TIPS REPOSITORY that will look something like this . Submit something even if you think you might not be free on the night. We'd still love to combine all the R-Ladies tips in one Rmarkdown and make it available to everyone! Depending on the number of submissions we will restructure the repository into themes.

4. WIN A FABULOUS PRIZE! We will draft LUCKY WINNERS among the presenters to win an amazing prize (R EARRINGS, bags and much more!)!!


Following the lightning talks, we will hold a panel discussion featuring some of our past speakers and other R experts from industry and academia:

Belinda Maher from Transport for Victoria
Nikki Rubinstein from PwC
Melissa Davis from Walter and Eliza Hall Institute

The topics of the panel will be “the user experience of R language from various fields of proficiency” and “the impact of public speaking skills while presenting R work”. You will have the opportunity to ask any question you would like!
