It’s not even Labor Day, so it seems to be a bit early to start planning for next year’s R conferences. But, early-bird pricing for RStudio::Conf 2018 ends this Thursday.
The conference which will be held in San Diego between January 31st and February 3rd promises to match and even surpass this year’s event. In addition to keynotes from Di Cook (Monash University and Iowa State University), J.J. Allaire (RStudio Founder, CEO & Principal Developer), Shiny creator Joe Cheng, and Chief Scientist Hadley Wickham, a number of knowledgeable (and entertaining) speakers have already committed including quant, long-time R user and twitter humorist JD Long (@CMastication), Stack Overflow’s David Robinson (@drob) and ProPublica editor Olga Pierce (@olgapierce).
Making the deadline for early-bird pricing will get you a significant savings. The “full seat” price for the conference is $495 before midnight EST August 31, 2017 and $695 thereafter. You can register here.
For a good idea of the kinds of things you can expect to learn at RStudio::Conf 2018 have a look at the videos from this year’s event.
