The Mango Solutions LondonR meeting at UCL on Monday 15th June 2015 was successful as usual with over 200 attendees throughout the day.


Thanks to everyone who attended to help make the event such a success. It was great to see some new and old (not literally) faces.

The afternoon started with a super workshop from Mango’s Head of Consulting Andy Nicholls on ‘An Introduction to R Package Building’ which was a considerably reduced version of Mango’s 1 day course in R package building.  A more detailed version will be delivered as a 3 hour workshop at the EARL conference this year.
