While we’ve expanded the number of workshop attendees we can accommodate by nearly 50% in 2020, RStudio::conf workshops are very popular and do sell out quickly. We urge attendees who would like to attend workshops to register well in advance of the conference registration deadline.

Who should go?

rstudio::conf is for RStudio users, R administrators, and RStudio partners who want to learn how to write better Shiny applications, explore all the capabilities of R Markdown, work effectively with Spark or TensorFlow, build predictive models, understand the tidyverse of tools for data science, build tidy tools themselves, discover production-ready development & deployment practices, earn certification as a trainer for Shiny or the Tidyverse, or become a certified administrator of RStudio professional products.

Why do people go to rstudio::conf?

Because there is simply no better way to learn about all things R & RStudio.

After #rstudioconf, I shut my laptop for four days to decompress, marinate and spend some time with family. It’s back to work tomorrow and I couldn’t be more excited to start coding again and this feeling is why I love the R community so much. — Caitlyn Hudon

Thing I learned at #Rstudioconf that sticks out to me the most: it turns out that this group of people who are so kind and welcoming online are also kind and welcoming in real life. More than any library or api that’s what makes #rstats great. — Nick Strayer

Wrote a little post on why #rstudioconf is the best conference experience i have had. No kidding. I am on a high! — Athanasia Mowinckel
