Mango also run EARL, our annual R conference, with 3 days of talks, workshops and networking for R users.

Be a speaker

Volunteering to speak at a LondonR event is a great way to share your ideas and experiences with other group members and also looks good on a CV. The events are friendly and welcoming and we'd be happy to discuss any ideas you have for presentations, or provide guidance and help putting your talk together. We know public speaking can be daunting and isn't everyone's cup of tea, so if there's anything we can do to help boost your confidence and help you deliver the best talk you can, do please let us know. Alternatively, if you have a brilliant idea for a talk you'd like to see from someone else, give us a shout and we'll try our best to arrange it!

Workshops

Alongside the main LondonR meet-up, Mango often run a free workshop prior to the evening event. These workshops cover a wide range of R related topics, from creating a shiny application, to building your first R package. As a general rule, workshops are suitable for those with a small amount of R experience, though requirements are communicated via the mailing list and meetup.com group beforehand. If you have any suggestions for workshop topics that you think would have broad appeal, please let us know.
