Happy January! Below, we share a list of upcoming conferences that either focus on the R programming language or showcase its use in the field. If we have missed your conference, please leave a comment with the details. We will update our list as we receive more information.
(2 – 5) Nashville, TN – NICAR is well attended by data journalists. Matthew Ericson, Assistant Managing Editor at The New York Times, noted the prevalence of the R programming language at the conference:
At #nicar22 and struck by how prevalent R has become in data journalism, so I thought it would be fun to see how the hands-on classes have changed since my early NICAR days. Found a PDF of the 2004 NICAR schedule and totaled up the types of classes then and now. pic.twitter.com/XRM7y1D6Sb— Matthew Ericson (@mericson) March 5, 2022
