Steph Locke is starting up satRdays, the R equivalent to SQL Saturdays.  Right now, she’s still in the very early stages of planning, but I’m already excited.  The RTP area is full of analysts (if you’re interested, join the Research Triangle Analysts Meetup group and attend some of their meetings), and I think we could get a conference of three to five tracks going in 2016.  Once things settle down a little bit, I plan to get involved with satRdays and see if I have enough time and enough interested people to get another annual event in RTP.
