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.
This post was originally shared on the Amy’s blog. With lots of help, I organized the inaugural SatRday LA conference at UCLA Alumni Center on April 6, 2019. I promised myself (and publicly on a Slack —> I guess this is really why I am posting now) to write a blogpost about my organizing experience. First of all, what I am about to talk about are just how we decided to organize a SatRday and you are free to organize SatRday in any way you like, as long as you don’t violate SatRday Org’s important requirements.
