Here at Jumping Rivers, we love data science. One of the huge benefits of data science is transparency. For example, R. Being an open-source language, it immediately is giving something back to the community that propels it to the top of the data science ladder. Just like the world of data science, our ethos is transparency and giving back to the community. Conference sponsorship To help support the community, we are offering automatic sponsorship of any R conference.
The daffodils are out, the sun is shining(ish), spring is in the air! And that means that it’s time to start planning for the conference season. This year we’ll be treated to a lot more in person conferences for the first time since 2020, but for those of you who either prefer the online formats, or are still a bit hesitant about attending large conferences, fear not! There are many online and hybrid conferences for you to enjoy, and we’ve included a few highlights below.
For the last few years we’ve offered automatic sponsorship for meet-ups and satRday events. However for obvious COVID related reasons, most (all?) meet-ups have meeting getting together virtually, so the need for extra Pizza money has diminished. As with most organisations, we’ve had to adapted to the new online-first environment. In particular, running primarily online training courses. We’ve always ran some, online events, but now we’re running in excess of ten days of training per month on topics ranging from R, Python, Git, Shiny and Stan.
SatRdays SatRdays are great. Low cost R events, held around the world. What’s not to love! For the last year, we have been offering automatic sponsorship for all SatRday events. All the organisers have to do is complete a quick questionnaire and the money is sent on it’s way. So far we have sponsored seven events!
