R in Hydrology Short Course at EGU2018


In this session (check out the details here) you have the opportunity to see some great people and myself showcase the power of R in hydrology - that is, recent packages, models and approaches. Recent developments around the R user and developer base (e.g. R-Ladies) will also be discussed. This is the second installment of the short course (started by Berry Boessenkool), which we hope will turn into a longer running series at the EGU AGMs.


R is an exceptionally useful programming language for data science, modelling and producing (interactive) content. It’s increasingly growing in popularity - from both employee and employer perspective (see this infographic) - due to its flexibility and open source nature. Academia has caught on, and R is now becoming more and more part of our day-to-day workflows. In short: don’t miss out on 1.5 hours of hydrology and R fun!
