Couldn’t make it to Orlando in January?  We’re excited to bring you the next best thing.

Whether you missed the conference, missed a talk, or just want to refresh your memory, you can find all the recordings from the first ever conference about All Things R & RStudio at Just click on +rstudio::conf 2017 when you get there to expand the list.

Of course, the session recordings can’t capture the complete “in person” experience. You had to be there to immerse in the 2 day workshops led by Hadley Wickham, Garrett Grolemund, and Joe Cheng; join in cocktails and conversation at the Datacamp Happy Hour; attend the exclusive Friday evening access to Universal Studio’s Wizarding World of Harry Potter under a full moon; hang out at the RStudio Connect lounge and with our friends from Cloudera, Mango Solutions, MetrumRG, Quantide, and Supstat; or make and renew friendships with more than 400 attendees from every line of work and the entire RStudio team. We hope you’ll consider joining us in January 2018 – location and exact dates still to be announced.

In the meantime, the recordings showcase some of the most interesting uses of R and RStudio for everyone.

Enjoy and share!

On the other side of the Holidays are sunny January days in Florida, home of rstudio::conf 2017 and the exclusive Wizarding World of Harry Potter experience reserved for our guests!

There are fewer than 80 seats remaining. We hope you’ll register soon to join hundreds of the most passionate data scientists in the world from January 12 to 14, each looking for the latest and best information on all things R and RStudio.

Short talks, or demos of your R code, R packages, and shiny apps are great options. See some of the great lightning talks from the Shiny Developer Conference (scroll down to user talks).
