R-Ladies Colombo is a local chapter of R-Ladies Global, an organization that promotes diversity in the R community worldwide. We meetup in person or virtually to learn about the R programming language, algorithms and advanced tools. There are 197 R-Ladies chapters worldwide and R-Ladies Colombo is the first ever chapter in Sri Lanka.
R-Ladies welcomes members of all R proficiency levels, whether you’re a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking & expert upskilling. Our community is designed to develop our members’ R skills & knowledge through social, collaborative learning & sharing. Supporting minority identity access to STEM skills & careers, the Free Software Movement, and contributing to the global R community!
