Details

Please join us at our January meetup at Fred Hutch (Arnold Building) to learn all about data structures in R and beyond. We will host two speakers, who will give us a background in data structures from a broad computer science perspective, and then give us an intro to R's S4 class (often used in Bioconductor packages). This event will be aimed at R-Ladies at all levels of experience.

We will begin with socializing/networking at 6pm. Talks will begin at 6:30pm.

Speakers:
Robin Reynolds-Haertle is a technical writer at Google, a computer science graduate student at Georgia Tech, and the author of a book on object-oriented programming. She has an MS in biomathematics from UW and an MSE from SeattleU. Her hobbies are quilting and coding.
