Birds of a Feather (BoF) at rstudio::conf(2019L)



What is a Birds of a Feather Session? As we see it, a BoF is just a short unconference within a conference, organized or left un-organized (mostly) by participants! Topics may be narrow or broad. Some may have agendas and others may be purely for networking. Depending on the size of the group or other conflicts, some may meet during lunch and others in a BoF lounge during breaks between sessions.

At a minimum, each group will have a friendly set of people working in common areas or on common issues, or working with common tools.

Schedule & Location Notes

  • Thursday Evening Happy Hour: Certain BoFs meeting Thursday evening, 6-7:00 PM, in large dedicated rooms.
  • Lunch or Breakfast: we'll have a section of the dinning hall reserved for this group.
  • Lounge: for meetings during breaks between talks, we have a special lounge set aside for BoFs.
  • R-Ladies: To meet Friday evening, 6-7:00 PM in a large dedicated room.
