Hi everyone! I’m a convener for EdinbR. This month we’re doing something special and have a week of lunchtime seminars about the benefits of working openly. Please sign up and share with your networks!

Work with data or manage people who do?

Want to learn about automation, improving processes and how to incorporate open tools like Python and R? Want to learn about what open might mean for you, whether you’re looking for tools, processes, principles or just general interest?

This June, attend a special series of lunchtime seminars. These feature an awesome set of people talking about different aspects of working openly – and what the benefits are!

Topics covered include: data maturity, software review, data science, community building, data engineering and pipelines, and making a business of open source. There’s something for everyone.

Please register below and share this event with as many colleagues, friends and family as possible.
