A series of participative sessions among coding enthusiasts interested in data analysis, number crunching and teaching of statistics using a variety of languages and tools.

You test your code. We know you do. How else are you sure that your changes don’t break the program? But after you commit, you …

We meet bi- or tri-weekly (see past sessions) at the Department of Statistics, either in Leganés or Getafe.
Sessions are held in a room equipped with a projector and spots for laptops. The idea is that attendees bring their own laptops to the session to follow a reproducible tutorial. The main topic of the session is communicated by email a week before.
In ~60 minutes, the speaker presents a topic they may think it is of interest using materials with reproducible code. Attendees follow the materials and may ask questions on the go. The presentation is informal and the speaker’s goal is to deliver the key insights behind the code, useful tricks, and patches to common errors.
The materials for each session are hosted in this website as posts. Each post will be solely authored by the presenter, hence providing a proof of participation. Also, the post may contain possible follow-ups and comments to the sessions. Note that posts in the R category are automatically re-published in R-Bloggers (check our contributions).
Members of the Department of Statistics and the UC3M-Santander Big Data Institute, with the kind collaboration of other departments (Mathematics, Economics, Computer Science and Engineering, etc). Any person with interest in coding is welcome to join!
