Join us,  November 9-10 at the Watson Developer Conference (R Consortium is co-sponsoring the event), at the Innovation Hangar in SanFrancisco, CA, for an opportunity to learn about the latest Watson technologies.  Also meet some of the Watson teams and partners who are building with cognitive, real-time.

This event will give you everything you need to build and learn about Watson. From weekend hacker to seasoned app builder, the conference is designed to have a little bit of something for everyone. Take a look at the full experience below:

The Hands-On Experience:

Labs: Dig into code tutorials on the latest Watson APIs—including conversation, vision, andmore—to learn the basics from the ground up and get tips from Watson developers.

1:1 Conversations with LeadersGet concrete examples of in-market applications and tips toadd machine learning to your projects. Chat 1:1 with leading thinkers like Francesco D’Orazio,VP of Product at Pulsar, to dive deeper into your unique use case.

SpotlightsLearn where Watson is going with speakers like Rama Akkiraju, DistinguishedEngineer and Master Inventor at IBM, in 45-minute sessions packed with actionableinformation. Hear from expert panelists, including Shay Strong, Data Scientist at OmniEarth, andChris Messina, Developer Experience Lead at Uber.

Certification: Become one of the first certified Watson Application Developers and arm yourselfwith the experience you need to build the next big app using machine learning.

Competition: Competitive? Us too. Show off your skills during the onsite coding challenges. Or,prep a project to compete in one of the bot competitions.

R Hub – Public Beta
Oct 25, 2016 9:00 AM – 10:00 AM PDT

R-HUB, the most significant project that the R Consortium has funded to date, is making progress. The major goal of R-Hub is to develop a modern platform for simplifying and improving the R package development process. It will provide facilities to assist package creation, building binaries, and for publishing, distributing and maintaining packages.

Gábor Csárdi, R-Hub’s lead developer, will describe the latest development in R-Hub RC 1.0 and provide an overview of the first public beta.

Thank you for your interest in attending the R Hub Webinar. The Event has concluded. You can catch up by watching the video below.
