Welcome back for another season of R-Ladies, London ON (#LdnOnt)!
Our kickoff event this fall is an introductory crash course to R (i.e., using the R programming language) and RStudio (the integrated developing environment (IDE)/handy user interface for using R). All are welcome, be you a total newbie to R or even if you are a well-seasoned programmer looking to get a refresher on the basics.
We are extraordinarily excited to welcome back Cortney Hanna-Benson as our workshop leader. Cortney led our very first R-Ladies #LdnOnt workshop back in January 2017, and we have been looking forward to having her again ever since.
If you can, come with R and RStudio already installed, but if you have trouble or are unable to, don't let that hold you back. The workshop will be a mix of presentation and hands-on exercises. You are welcome to follow along actively or passively.
What is R-Ladies?: A low-key get together for people interested in using and learning more about R, a powerful statistical software program. We meet about once a month to feature different topics and speakers.
When: Tuesday, September 25, 5:00 p.m. - 7:00 p.m.
Where: London Public Library, Central Branch (251 Dundas, right downtown). We will be in the Training Room (formerly the Wellington Room) on the 2nd floor.
Cost: All our meet ups are free, and always will be!
Sounds good, where do I sign up? RSVP at our MeetUp page
I already know R, what's in it for me? Awesome! Come join a community of individuals interested in STEM research, meet new pals, learn new skills or sharpen old ones, or talk to us about leading a workshop on a topic you're passionate about!
I don't identify as a lady, but I still want to learn R - can I join? Yes! While we prioritize underrepresented genders in leadership positions (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender) leadership, our general membership is fully inclusive.

I'm interested in leading a workshop! How to I get in touch? Great! You don't even need to be a full fledged "expert" to lead a workshop... this is a group for skill swapping. If you're interested, send us an email at email@example.com.
