Better Placed team up with Datacove to deliver Manchester R Event in Oct.

  • Publish Date: Posted 10 months ago

October will see Better Placed Tech team up with Datacove to host and deliver the latest Manchester R meet up! ​

Manchester R is a group of friendly and local R professionals, meeting regularly in-person to share their passion for data and coding. Whether you have never heard of R, mainly code in Python, or you’ve been using R since 1993 – we’d love you to join! We are thrilled to be bringing you an extra special ~ spooky ~ Manchester R this October! By Spooky, your hosts will probably just be dressed as the Python logo.

The event will be brought to you by Datacove. We are a Data Consultancy Team based in Brighton, with experience in founding many well-attended events for R and Python. New leadership team, but the same brilliant community.

We will be supported by the generous team at Better Placed, at The Live Lounge, Huckletree Ancoats, Manchester. Hosted by Abbie Brookes and Zac Nash from Datacove.

For our first talk, we are overjoyed to have Sean Burton, who is a Geospatial Data Consultant at Azura Earth. Sean will be telling us more about “Using R with Geospatial Data”. He continues to explain that he will cover, “how I integrated my interest in maps with my career in Data to become a GIS/Geospatial Data freelancer using R. From the fun and frustration of working with different map projections, all the way to 3D animated built environment data visualisations using Shiny.”

As for our second talk, you’ll have to wait in anticipation for the details to be announced soon! 😉

Now, refreshments! Drinks and pizza will be served from 6pm. Talks will commence at 6:30pm/6:45pm and the event will conclude at 8:30pm. The conversation will continue after the event at a local pub TBC – obviously!

If you didn’t already have a million reasons to come, there will be (free!) R Merchandise kindly sent by Posit themselves.
