SatRdays are community-led, regional conferences to support collaboration, networking and innovation within the R community. The initiative of Steph Locke and Gergely Daroczi was accepted and funded by the R consortium. The very first event of this series took place in Budapest, Hungary on September 3, 2016 with almost 200 attendees of 19 countries and 12 hours of pure R fun. The day began with various workshops, followed by two keynotes and several regular talks, and ended with a data visualization challenge. The complete schedule can be found on the conference website, http://budapest.satrdays.org . The talks were live-streamed and can be watched online: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/xFdxHeVnGKS . If you have only limited time, we recommend the following talks: 1st keynote by Gábor Csárdi (R package history), Romain François‘ question section (including a marriage proposal), 2nd keynote by Jeroen Ooms (HTTP requests, ImageMagick) and data sonification by Thomas Levine. In overall, the first satRdays event received very positive feedback from the R community, and started to establish the reputation of the series. Personal thoughts about the conference from the main organizer were published at https://www.r-consortium.org/news/blogs/2016/09/start-satrdays .
