Reflections on the China R User Conference

June 6, 2014

It was a great honour to be able to present to the China R Users Conference in Beijing last month, and share various applications of R that I've encountered recently. I was really invigorated by the enthusiasm of the many R users at the conference, and everyone was very warm and friendly. Here's a photo I took from the stage, so you can see how many people were there (and you can't even see the balcony in this photo):

(I also took a selfie from the stage, but it's a bit blurry.) I'd especially like to thank the organizers of the conference for inviting me, the volunteers who made me feel so welcome (especially Tong He for being such a great tour guide), and the folks from Revolution Analytics Singapore and SupStat who helped me on my trip. Vivian Zhang from SupStat has a nice recap of the conference, including more photos and some statistics from the conference — check it out!
