Please note: because of the limited space & anticipated popularity of the speaker, this event is limited to minority genders (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender. See footnote for more details).
For this month's meetup we have a very special guest : Hadley Wickham!
No bio can really do Hadley justice but here is what is on wikipedia currently: Hadley Wickham is a statistician from New Zealand who is currently Chief Scientist at RStudio & an adjunct Professor of statistics at the University of Auckland, Stanford University, & Rice University. He is best known for his development of open-source statistical analysis software packages for R (programming language) that implement logics of data visualisation & data transformation. Wickham's packages & writing are known for advocating a tidy data approach to data import, analysis & modelling methods.
1. Male allies have been great supporters of the RLadies mission to promote gender diversity in the R Community. Chapters have benefitted from men speaking, donating books for raffles, offering RLadies speaking opportunities at their meetups, promoting our events, telling the women in their life about the group, & more. In the case of this event specifically, we believe the best way male allies can support us is by letting 80 minority genders get the chance to learn from Hadley.
