We will be sending out emails with the official information regarding the Applied Machine Learning workshop. This post will be used to supplement that information and enable a discussion about prerequisites, package installs, and any other questions that you have beforehand.
The GitHub repo
rstudio-conf-2019 will contain the code, slides, data, and everything else required for the workshop. It will be finalized a few days before the we start.
There will be about 180 people taking this two-day workshop. To accommodate everyone, there will be two parallel sessions running next door to one another. I will be teaching blocks of the materials in each room and switching back and forth. When I am not in a session, Alex Hayes or Davis Vaughan will teach the materials. There will also be multiple teaching assistants in each room to help with installs and hands-on sessions.
The logistics might evolve a little before the conference. We'll maintain contact over email to keep you posted and update this Community post with anything that you need to know.
We will have RStudio Server Pro (RSP) instances for those would like them. If you don’t want to use a server (i.e. you will only run on your machine), the installation instructions are contained in
installs.R. We recommend the current release of R for compatibility. If you don't want to modify your local install to upgrade, we will be happy to provide an RSP instance for you to use.
If you have questions, please post them here so that everyone can be informed and contribute to the discussion.
Thanks and see you in Austin.
