CDRC host LondonR for R enthusiasts

On 5 April 2016 the Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) along with Mango Solutions, hosted ‘LondonR’, the UK’s premier meetup group for users of the R statistical programming language. This free event runs quarterly at the University College London, with a series of workshops and presentations followed by an evening of networking at the in-house bar.

The event kicked off with a workshop led by Gabor Csardi, Principal Consultant, Mango Solutions, who demonstrated the basics of R packaging, finding and browsing code of R packages on GitHub and CRAN as well as best practices for R users.

The evening session was at full capacity, with R enthusiasts in attendance for presentations by:

  • RosettaHUB | the next generation data science platform – Karim Chine, RosettaHub
  • Highlights from the Shiny Developer Conference | Aimee Gott, Mango Solutions
  • Professional matchmaking in R | Building a simple, practicable recommender with R for matching expert professionals to those seeking expertise – Duncan Stoddard, DS Analytics

The next LondonR is scheduled for June 2016; the exact date will be posted on our website soon. For all past and present LondonR presentations, click here.

The Consumer Data Research Centre also delivers courses on R – our next course ‘Intermediate and advanced R for spatial data’ will be hosted at the University of Leeds. For more on this and all other training by the CDRC, click here.
