• What we'll do
Analytics>Forward is happening again! Based on the "bar camp"-style conferences, the program will be set the day of the conference based on all of the exciting pitches you'll hear first thing in the morning. Bring your 50-minute talk and a stack of business cards for a day of mathy fun with all of your favorite analysts. Your $10 registration buys breakfast, lunch (provided by @IBM_Analytics), and coffee all day!
This year, we are very pleased to welcome Mara Averick (@dataandme on Twitter), as our keynote speaker! Mara is an RStudio employee whose celebrated curation of data-science web posts has earned her almost 20,000 Twitter followers and enormous gratitude in the community. Mara’s talk will explore what she has learned about successfully communicating data science discoveries and concepts.
