It's the last week in July and this means that ecologists across North America (and elsewhere) are busy returning from the field and preparing their presentations and posters in anticipation of the annual Ecological Society of America meeting. The entire rOpenSci dev team will be in attendance this year and we have several workshops, talks, and events planned out. The topics range from half-day workshops on open data, data visualization, reproducible research, to an entire symposium on open science.
Here's a current schedule:
|Event||Location and date||Registration|
|WK 5: Data Visualization Using R||101B, Minneapolis Convention Center, Sunday 8 - 11:30 am||Closed|
|WK 15 Conducting Open Science Using R and DataONE: A Hands-on Primer (Open Format)||L100D, Minneapolis Convention Center, Sunday 12 - 5 pm||Closed|

We are also excited to annouce the first ever rOpenSci happy hour thanks to generous support from GitHub. Come have a few drinks on us Monday night and meet the rOpenSci team. We'd be super excited to talk to you about our current projects, research workflow, and possible collaborations on any data/code related projects you might have in mind.
Location: Brit's Pub, 3rd floor Verandah bar. 6:30 pm. Generously sponsored by GitHub.
