• What we'll do
This month we're hosting Mara Averick, Tidyverse Developer Advocate at RStudio! She is the voice behind @dataandme on Twitter.
Mara will be giving a talk on contributing to open source software. The meetup will follow the Analytics Forward 2018 Unconference.
Dinner will be provided by the Women in Quantitative Sciences Initiative at Duke University.
All events are intended for women as leaders, mentors, members, and attendees. We are emphatically queer and trans friendly. Men are welcomed to attend as guests. This group was created so those who identify as women have a comfortable place to learn. If you would like to attend and feel excluded, please introduce yourself to an organizer.
