We’re proud to be part of the Data Science and R communities.
We recognise the importance of knowledge sharing across industries, helping people with their personal and professional development, networking, and collaboration in improving and growing the community. This is why we run a number of events and participate in many others.
Each year, we host and sponsor events across the UK, Europe and the US. Each event is open everyone —experienced or curious— and aims to help people share and gain knowledge about Data Science and to get them involved with the wider community. To get you started we’ve put together a list of the different our events you can attend over the next 12 months:
Free community events
We host LondonR in central London every two months. At each meet up we have three brilliant R presentations followed by networking drinks – which are on us. Where possible we also offer free workshops about a range of R topics, including Shiny, ggplot2 and the Tidyverse.
The next event is on 27 March at UCL, you can sign up to our mailing list to hear about future events.
Manchester R takes place four times a year. Following the same format as LondonR, you will get three presentations followed by networking drinks on us. We also offer free workshops before the main meeting so you can stay up-to-date with the latest tools.
Our next event is on 6 February where the R-Ladies are taking over for the night. For more information visit the Manchester R website.
Bristol Data Scientists
Our Bristol Data Science events have a wider focus, but they follow the same format as our R user groups – three great presentations from the community and then drinks on us. If you’re interested in Data Science, happen to be a Data Scientist or work with data in some way then you are welcome to join us.
This year, we’re introducing free Data Science workshops before the meeting, so please tell us what you’d like to hear more about.
The Bristol meetup takes place four times a year at the Watershed in central Bristol. If you’d like to come we recommend joining the meetup group to stay in the loop.
This meet up is a little further afield, but if you’re based in or near Basel, you’ll catch us twice a year running this R user group. Visit the BaselR website for details on upcoming events.
As you may have guessed, we love R, so we try to support the community where we can. We’ve partnered up with OxfordR this year to bring you pizza and wine while you network after the main presentation. OxfordR is held on the first Monday of every month, you can find details here on their website.
BirminghamR is under new management and we are helping them get started. Their first event for 2018 is coming up on 25 January; for more information check out their meetup page.
Data Engineering London
One of our newest meetup groups focuses on Data Engineering. We hold two events a year that give Data Engineers in London the opportunity to listen to talks on the latest technology, network with fellow engineers and have a drink or two on us. The next event will be announced in the coming months. To stay up-to-date please visit the meetup group.
As well as attending our free events, you can let us know if you’d like to present a talk. If you have something you’d like to share just get in touch with the team by emailing us.
Our EARL Conferences were developed on the success of our R User Groups and the rapid growth of R in enterprise. R users in organisations around the country were looking for a place to share, learn and find inspiration. The enterprise focus of EARL makes it ideal for people to come and get some ideas to implement in the workplace. Every year delegates walk away feeling inspired and ready to work R magic in their organisations.
This year our EARL Conference dates are:
London: 11-13 September at The Tower Hotel
Seattle: 7 November at Loews Hotel 1000
Houston, 9 November at Hotel Derek
Boston, 13 November at The Charles Hotel
Speak at EARL
If you’re doing exciting things with R in your organisation, submit an abstract so others can learn from your wins. Accepted speakers get a free ticket for the day they are speaking.

Plus, you’ll find members of the Mango team speaking at Data Science events around the country. If you’d love to have one of them present at your event, please do get in touch.
Wherever you’re based we hope we will see you soon.
