One week ago I was in Cape Town for the local satRday conference, where I had the honor to be one of the two keynote speakers, the other one being sports analytics extraordinaire Stephanie Kovalchik (You can read Stephanie Kovalchik’s account of the conference in this blog post). It was a fantastic experience! The event was very well organized, and 100% corresponds to its description as a “one day conference packed with R goodness”. You can watch all talks on Youtube. In my talk, I presented rOpenSci onboarding system of packages and… wore a hard hat!
It’d be a bit hard for me to really write a good recap of satRday that’d do it justice! Instead, I’ll use
rtweet and a bit of html hacking to storrrify it (like Storify, but in R) using my live tweets!
