By Roel M. Hogervorst on 2019-01-04

In this blogpost we look back at our satRday in Amsterdam 2018. We pull out the lessons we learned and which could help you when you are organizing a satRday. We will definitely use this document for our next satRday. This document is not meant to be a full on evaluation of the entire event, we feel those will never be read. This is a highly skimmable document with the most important pointers for new and returning organizers.

This post was originally shared on the R Consortium blog. Almost 200 people from 19 countries registered for the first satRday conference which was held last Saturday, September 3rd, in Budapest. The final count showed that nearly 170 R users spent 12 hours at the conference venue attending workshops, regular and lighting talks, social events and a data visualization challenge. If you missed the event, you can rewatch the live stream of the conference talks at any time.
