We would like to invite you to an informal networking event to celebrate the establishment of the group and to meet the R community in Cape Town. Everyone is welcome – no need for prior experience in R. The event is open to anyone in academia (all institutes) and industry.
When: 23 April 2015
Time: 17:00 – 19:00
Where: University of Cape Town Club (aka “The Lab”)- Restaurant, Upper Campus Sports Centre, Rondebosch
What: Short demos of useful R packages in research followed by networking
Jean-Baka will be demonstrating the use of RWorldMaps to plot maps of Africa where he is showing data concerning various aspects of the teaching, training and scientific research activity within a network of bioinformatics teams spread across the continent (http://www.h3abionet.org).
Maia will take us on a quick tour through the Hadley-verse – a summary of R packages from Hadley Wickham, chief Scientist at RStudio who has developed incredibly useful packages for data manipulation and visualisation.
The evening (free drinks and R swag as spot prizes) is sponsored by Revolution Analytics.
See you there!
