A overview of how to connect to, and use SQL databases in R.

An overview of survival analysis in R in 15 minutes (or there abouts)

This talk will discuss my PhD work in text mining patient safety incident reports in the NHS.

Tales of learning to build count data models when you can't tell if you're wrong.

A quick bit of new-tidyr / pivot learning, and a cheaky steal from purrr for good measure

We will discuss what funnel plots are, how to build them, what overdispersion is and how we can adjust plots for this. We'll see the FunnelPlotR package and how it works.

A overview of how to connect to, and use SQL databases in R.

Why building Generalized Additive Models (GAMs) using the `mgcv` package is a great idea.

Summary of our use and adoption of R, and how this might help other organisations.

A lightning talk tour of why `mgcv` is awesome, including what regression models are, options for dealing with non-linear relationships, what splines are, and how we can use splines in a Generalized Additive Modle (GAM). Simon Wood's excellent `mgcv` package makes this easy to build and fit.
