What is earl?

As we cannot meet in person safely, we have decided to move EARL online, a virtuEARL if you like! This way anyone around the world can join and enjoy some brilliant R stats content.

The Enterprise Applications of the R Language Conference (EARL) is a cross-sector conference focusing on the commercial use of the R programming language. The conference is dedicated to the real-world usage of R with some of the world’s leading practitioners.

You can usually find EARL in the Tower Hotel London, but this October you can join us via Zoom for a series of workshops and a day of presentations.


Who is earl for?

If you use R in your organisation, the EARL Conference is for you and your team. Whether you’re coding, wrangling data, leading a team of R users, or making data-driven decisions, EARL offers insights you can action in your company.


The best in the business present their real-world projects, ideas and solutions at EARL each year and it’s the perfect opportunity to see how others are using R in production.
