Book Club Meeting

Request for 2019 Lightning Talk Submissions

R-Ladies NYC are excited to be hosting an evening of lightning talks on Wednesday June 19! We held this event last year and it was a tremendous success, so we are really excited about the event this year! Lighting talks are five minute talks. You can talk about anything R, Tech, and/or Data Science related. Looking for ideas? How about talking about a cool package you found, how you use R in your company, a favorite learning resource, your journey into Data Science, or a side project you’ve been working on?

Request for R-Ladies Logo Submissions

We are excited to announce that we are holding open submissions for an R-Ladies NYC logo for hex stickers! Design notes: the R-Ladies font is Open Sans and the colors are #88398a (Purple) & #a7a9ac (Gray), though the logo can use variants of these colors and other colors. Here is the repo for the R-Ladies logo as a reference. Also, the hexSticker package is useful, but you are welcome to use any tool you desire!
