Amsterdam’s first satRday conference was gReat. From August 31th till September 2nd, the satRday Amsterdam 2018 took place. Three days of the event started with Workshops at Uber, followed by the conference day, hosted by GoDataDriven, and finally an open-source day.

Over 100 R enthusiasts registered for these events and during the weekend we’ve enjoyed new insights, thoughtful reviews and of course the R jokes!
