SUNDAY - MONDAY
For posit::conf(2023), we have an array of workshops that will feature hands-on exercises, discussions, and Q&A. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet, share and collaborate with other conference attendees with similar interests. This year, for the first time, we’re offering a mix of one and two-day workshops so that with your two-day workshop pass, you can choose to go deep into a single topic or spread your time across two topics.
TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY
Four conference tracks will highlight exciting work across the R, PyData, & Posit landscape in two exciting days. You’ll hear from some of the most thoughtful practitioners and effective speakers in science, industry, and technology.
Talks will be live-streamed for those who can’t join in person, and we’ll post recordings a few weeks after the conference, so you can review anything you missed. A full list of speakers and a complete agenda will be available in early August.
