For a fifth year running, rOpenSci is excited to announce our unconference 2018, this time in Downtown Seattle in the verdant Pacific Northwest. We're organizing this event to bring together scientists, developers, and open data enthusiasts from academia, industry, government, and non-profits to get together for a few days and hack on various projects. rOpenSci unconferences have a rich history. Past projects have related to open data, data visualization, data publication and open science using R. To ensure a safe, enjoyable, and friendly experience for everyone who participates, we follow a strict code of conduct and terms and conditions.
We are assembling an exciting team of developers and enthusiasts representing academia, industry, government, and various open source projects.
In addition to support from the Helmsley Charitable Trust, we are extremely grateful to all the sponsors for this year's event. We are also grateful to our fiscal sponsor, NumFOCUS, for helping organize the event.
