To celebrate its 10th anniversary, we are excited to invite you to Brighton for EARL 2024!

The Enterprise Applications of the R Language Conference (EARL) is a cross-sector tech conference focusing on the commercial use of the R programming language and this year it will be held in the iconic seafront hotel – The Grand Brighton.

In an exciting expansion, EARL 2024 will introduce Python into the program! The convergence of Python’s machine learning and web development capabilities with R’s statistical expertise at EARL promises to provide an encompassing perspective on the field of data science.

Datacove, in partnership with Silicon Brighton (the hosts of the Brighton & Hove tech community), are delighted to be running EARL for the first time and look forward to welcoming you to Brighton on 3rd – 5th Sept 2024!

Hadley Wickham

Hadley Wickham probably needs no introduction, but is renowned for his ground breaking work in R programming. He is the chief scientist at Posit, PBC and creator of the tidyverse!

His influential packages, such as ggplot2 and dplyr, have earned him prestigious honors, including the COPSS Presidents’ Award and recognition as a Fellow by the American Statistical Association, underscoring his pivotal role in advancing statistical computing accessibility.

Christel Swift

Christel Swift has spent her career in music and media measurement, with her current role as Senior Principal Data Scientist at the BBC helping stakeholders utilise data to inform decisions.

A seasoned speaker at EARL, Swift has previously presented on Market Basket analysis and Network Graphs, and Causal Inference. She is currently working on synthesizing datasets to understand the BBC’s audience reach across TV, Radio, and Online.

Andy Field, author of many popular statistics textbooks is known for his engaging and unconventional teaching style. Dubbed ‘the Harry Potter of the Social Sciences,’ Field’s books stand out for their approachable nature.
