Ceci n'est pas un conf, 🎬✌️

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. πŸ’₯

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 πŸ‘‡.

Thank you πŸ™

A huge thank you to rOpenSci, and everyone who made the event happen, especially Stefanie Butland! Look at all those happy faces β€” what more proof could you possibly need of a job well done? πŸ˜„

  1. At this point the fact that I’m an impostor is pretty much common knowledge, so what’s there to be nervous about? πŸ˜‰β†©

  2. Accessible pdf versions of my notes, pages one and two, are available at their respective links.↩
