Launching R-Ladies Chapter in Gainesville/Alachua County!


Hi there! 

Something exciting is happening this fall: the newly formed R-Ladies chapter in Gainesville / Alachua county!

R-Ladies Gainesville welcomes members of all R proficiency levels, whether you’re a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking or expert upskilling. Our non-profit, civil society community is designed to develop our members’ R skills & knowledge through social, collaborative learning & sharing. Supporting minority identity access to STEM skills & careers, the Free Software Movement, and contributing to the global R community!

A local chapter of R-Ladies Global, R-Ladies Gainesville exists to promote gender diversity in the R community worldwide. We are pro-actively inclusive of queer, trans, and all minority identities, with additional sensitivity to intersectional identities. Our priority is to provide a safe community space for anyone identifying as a minority gender who is interested in and/or working with R. As a founding principle, there is no cost or charge to participate in any of our R-Ladies communities around the world.

Our next meeting will be on Tuesday September 18, 2018, 6:00PM to 7:00PM at the Alachua County Library Headquarters Branch (Foundation Room).

Dr Auriel Fournier (Twitter: @RallidaeRule) will talk to/with us about the package rtweet – a great package to organize Twitter data and manage tweets. Dr Fournier’s website:

We ask people to please RSVP on our Meetup site so we have an idea how to set up the room!

Since this meeting will be held downtown, we encourage everyone to continue socializing after the talk. We propose Boca Fiesta/The Backyard (but we can change this if needed/wanted).
