SatRdays returned to London last month, with a day packed full of talks from expert speakers across a variety of sectors! We’d like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to everybody involved in making the day a success!
Huge thanks to all of our speakers for your contributions for the day. It was great to see such a varied line up of talks, covering everything from Sidekicks of the Tidyverse, to Sustainability and EDI in the R Project, with much more in between. We’ll be adding any available talk materials to the SatRdays website in the coming days.
- Julia Silge (Posit): What is “production” anyway? MLOps for the curious
- Oli Hawkins (Financial Times): Why R is good for journalism
- Michael Stevens & Botan Ağın (SamKnows): AutRmatic reporting: billions of internet measurements, hundreds of reports and one repository to rule them all
- Russ Hyde (Jumping Rivers): Does code quality even matter in data science?
- Ella Kaye & Heather Turner (University of Warwick): Sustainability and EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion) in the R Project
- Andrew Collier (presenter) & Bianca Peterson (Fathom Data): Sidekicks of the Tidyverse
- Jack Davison (Ricardo Energy & Environment): “Put it on a map!” – Developments in Air Quality Data Analysis

Whether you want to start from scratch, or improve your skills, Jumping Rivers has a training course for you.

Of course, a conference would not work with nobody there to see it, so thank you to all of our attendees, both in-person and virtual! We hope that you enjoyed the day as much as we did, and that you got a chance to network and learn and maybe share a bit of your own knowledge too!
Keep an eye out here and on our social media, as we’ll be sharing the recordings of some of the talks, so if you missed out on the day, you don’t have to miss out completely!
