We are excited to host an online version of one our most popular events - R-Ladies NYC Lightning Talks! We are extending the submission deadline to provide more support for interested speakers, and have added a speaker workshop on 9⁄23 to provide guidance and support. If you are interested in proposing a talk but want to brainstorm ideas, get feedback, or some encouragement, join us for the event on 9⁄23 and RSVP on our meetup page.
Fill out this brief form by Friday, October 1st to submit your application to be a speaker! https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfauyyLjj8-S2_XOvk0KHCsy2QC93u5mtXvjRPc0Ohrzi0bzQ/viewform
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?
We would especially love to hear from people who’ve never presented at a meetup or conference before and/or those who still don’t feel confident speaking publicly. A lightning talk can be a great way to start out speaking, as it’s quick, low-prep, and fun!
Interested in proposing a talk but want to brainstorm ideas, get feedback, or some encouragement? We’re here to help! You can join the #lightningtalks channel in our slack channel or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We would be happy to set up a time to talk with you!
To celebrate the diversity in the R Community, we’re prioritizing presenters who identify as a minority gender (including but not limited to cis/trans women, trans men, non-binary, genderqueer, agender).
