The first ever EARL (Enterprise Applications of the R Language) conference in San Francisco will take place on June 5-7 (and it's not too late to register).  The EARL conference series is now in its fourth year, and the prior conferences in London and Boston have each been a fantastic way to learn how R is used in real-world applications. Judging from the speaker lineup in San Francisco, next month's event looks like it will feature some great R stores as well. Included on the program will be stories from the following companies:

  • AirBnB (Keynote presentation by Ricardo Bion)
  • StitchFix (Keynote presentation by Hilary Parker)
  • Uber (Keynote presentation by Prakhar Mehrota)
  • Hitachi Solutions (David Bishop)
  • Amgen (Daniel Saldana)
  • Pfizer (Luke Fostveldt)
  • Fred Hutch Cancer Research Center (Thomas Vaughan)
  • Domino Data Lab (Eduardo  Ariño de la Rubia)
  • Genentech (Gabriel Becker)

… and many more. On a personal note, I'm looking forward to presenting with my colleague Bharath Sankaranarayan on using Microsoft R to predict hospital stays.
