We told you EARL 2018 was going to be awesome!

We’re excited to announce that Hadley Wickham will be the Keynote Speaker at our EARL Houston event on 9 November 2018.

Technically, we think Hadley needs no introduction, but just in case…

Hadley is Chief Scientist at RStudio, the company that created the most-used IDE for businesses and individuals using R around the world. He is interested in building computational and cognitive tools that make data ingest, manipulation, visualisation and analysis easier, particularly via the more than 30 R packages he has developed. He also leads the team that creates and maintains the widely used ‘tidyverse’, which contains some of the most popular packages in the R community.

An encouraging and supportive member of the R community, Hadley is well-known for his deep insight and willingness to answer questions and share his knowledge, authoring a number of books and online resources. While the topic of his talk will be a surprise, we know delegates will come away from his session with plenty to think about.

Take the stage with Hadley

Abstract submissions are open for both the US Roadshow in November and London in September. You could be on the agenda with Hadley in Houston as one of our speakers if you would like to share the R successes in your organisation.
