SatRdays are R-focused conferences that are held on Saturdays. They happen all over the globe, and are organised by local community leaders to help and grow the local community. There is a big emphasis on making these event accessible - by not requiring time off work, by not costing more than a day's wages, by being supportive of new community members or leaders (https://satrdays.org/).
The R Consortium (https://www.r-consortium.org/) helps to setup and continue to support us.The Consortium is filled with companies doing great things for or with R. They’re investing in growing the community and the support for the R language. Other fine companies are also getting involved by sponsoring or supporting local events.
SatRday Gdansk 2019 has an international range considering participants as well as organizers. Since the conference takes place in Poland, it has a very strong support from the largest local R enthusiasts’ groups as well as academic community:
