What we're about

R-Ladies Oslo welcomes members of all R proficiency levels, whether you're a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking & expert upskilling. Our non-profit, civil society community is designed to develop our members' R skills & knowledge through social, collaborative learning & sharing. Supporting minority identity access to STEM skills & careers, the Free Software Movement, and contributing to the global R community!

A local chapter of R-Ladies Global, R-Ladies Oslo exists to promote gender diversity in the R community worldwide. We are pro-actively inclusive of queer, trans, and all minority identities, with additional sensitivity to intersectional identities. Our priority is to provide a safe community space for anyone identifying as a minority gender who is interested in and/or working with R. As a founding principle, there is no cost or charge to participate in any of our R-Ladies communities around the world.

We are part of Global R-Ladies group. Here are some links! You can access our presentations, R scripts and more (soon) on our Github account and follow us on twitter to stay up to date about R-Ladies news!

PS Community Policies & Code of Conduct:

The leadership, mentoring & teaching roles within this Community are held exclusively by minority genders (majority gender 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 as a minority gender, and we, therefore, reserve the right to guard this interest through whatever measures the leadership team deems appropriate. Anyone involved with R-Ladies Oslo 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.

Full community guidelines are found here: https://github.com/rladies/starter-kit/wiki

Building shiny dashboards - with Aurora and Lene

Needs a location

In this workshop, Aurora and Lene will take us through the steps of building a shiny dashboard. We will incrementally build the dashboard, with explanations throughout to help you understand how the components act together. At the end of the workshop, you should enough basic understanding of shiny to be able to start building your own shiny dashboard. About the Shiny R-ladies: Aurora is a diverse data scientist in NextBridge Anlytics. She works with innovative and demanding analytical tasks, and has also worked with system developement. Her background is from physics and she has a PhD in the field of quantum mechanics and condensed matter physics. She has long experience from teaching in academia and began using R some years ago due to a demand for a shiny dashboard. Lene is a physicist turned data scientist. After analysing data for LHC injections at CERN she joined Nextbridge Analytics in 2016. She enjoys working on a wide range of projects using data and algorithms. After being introduced to R for the second time and tidyverse for the first time she really got into R and after learning about R-ladies she was a part of starting up R-ladies Oslo.
