Our April meeting will feature ...

  • Sam Crawley — Data manipulation with R

    R is well-known for its capabilities as a statistical language, and for its data visualisation tools. However, R is also very good at manipulation of datasets, including querying, mutation and reshaping data. In this talk, Sam will give a brief overview of R, and explain some of its very useful data manipulation features.

  • Tim McNamara — What is Rust and why is it interesting?"

    Rust keeps gaining momentum. It has been rated by Stack Overflow users as the most loved programming language 5 years in a row. But why? This talk will try to explain its continued rise. Come and learn the strategies that Rust employs that are applicable to all software developers
