About the event

Barcelona R aims to bring together the R and Data Science community of Barcelona through a fun and social meet-up. This event is free and open to anyone interested to find out exciting ways to use R in data science.

We welcome R users of all levels, data scientists from all backgrounds and simply anyone who is curious to learn more about programming using R and data analysis. During each Barcelona R event we run the following activities:

Coding Workshop

A free workshop that covers one of the many different topics related to R.
This workshop offers an opportunity to learn something new in a practical format of live coding and exercises in R.
Check out below for more details.


We aim to have 2 presentations from active R users.
These presentations show how R is used to solve data science problems or showcase new packages and features.
Check out below for more details.


After the presentations we like to get to know one another through networking. We think that this is a great way to share our experiences of using R in our everyday coding lives and discuss our data science problems.


Introduction to Data Manipulation

  • Tidyverse is a collection of R packages that are designed for data science tasks, more specifically for data manipulation, transformation, exploration and visualisation. These packages share a common design philosophy and contain functions that are consistent and uniform in coding style. Read more info here.
  • Topics:
    - Learn the “verbs” with {dplyr}
  • - Improve your workflow with {magrittr}
  • - Simple string manipulation using {stringr}
