I’d like to urge all of you in Northern California to attend iidata,
a student-run conference in data science, to be held on the UC Davis campus on May 21. According to the Web page,

iidata is a one-day, collegiate-level Data Science convention aimed at educating students in the new, thrilling field of data science. We welcome all students, regardless of background knowledge, so long as you have a mindset to never stop learning. The convention will consist of guest speakers, workshops, and competitions.

There is sure to be a lot of R there, including a workshop on R. I would particularly recommend that you attend the talks by the guest speakers from industry.

Stat professor Duncan Temple Lang and I will be judges in the data analysis competition. (See the above link for an ancient picture of me.:-) ) Of course, you need not participate in the competition in order to attend,
