I love the R community! I want to help make it as awesome as possible, and that means getting as many people involved as we can. More people participating means more knowledge sharing and more community. I see these weekend, local, super low-cost conferences as a vital way of improving the accessibility of knowledge and growing the community.
Beginnings satRday Cardiff started for my most of my friends in January 2018. At the first meeting of the year for the caRdiff R User Group, I suggested to the ‘regulars’ that we should run a satRday in Cardiff within six months. satRday Cardiff started for me in Budapest in September in 2016. Steph had successfully nudged me into not only going to the first ever satRday at nearly the last minute, but giving a talk to boot!
