This year’s rOpenSci unconf was held in Seattle, and (after the great time I had at last year’s event), I was thrilled to be able to go back for more! All the fun, with like 40% less mind-crippling impostor-syndrome anxiety.1 😬
Once again, Sean Kross did a great job of rounding up the projects, complete with emoji annotations. 💥

In order to avoid the month-long delay between attendance and blog post from last year, I took large(ish) notes during the project presentations. 2 You can and should visit the project README files for the details (since after two days of unconferring my note-taking skills were a little sub-par).
- The very awesome Paige Bailey (aka @DynamicWebPaige) made a vignette on Ethical Machine Learning, but wasn’t there to present. So, be sure to check that out 👇.

Better late than never, our @rOpenSci #runconf18 jobstatus 📦 is now working! It's prototype of a general framework for getting live progress updates for jobs running in parallel https://t.co/Z5X4qlWXaW @jcheng @bikesRdata pic.twitter.com/5nDT0cMLec— Nick Golding (@_NickGolding_) May 27, 2018
Thank you 🙏
A huge thank you to rOpenSci, and everyone who made the event happen, especially Stefanie Butland! Look at all those happy faces — what more proof could you possibly need of a job well done? 😄
