Promoting the use of R in the NHS


NHS-R Community Hacktoberfest Online Meetup 20th October 2020

Hosted by Zoe Turner and Chris Beeley from NHS-R Community.

Hacktoberfest is a month-long celebration of open source software. Maintainers are invited to guide would-be contributors towards issues that will help move the project forward, and contributors get the opportunity to give back to both projects they like and others they’ve just discovered. No contribution is too small — bug fixes and documentation updates are valid ways of participating.

Hacktoberfest meetups are welcoming, open, and inclusive.


  • Welcome & Introductions 10-10:30am
  • Introduce Hacktoberfest and NHS-R Community 10:30-10:50am
  • Discuss the possible open source projects to work on 10:50-11:30am
  • Get Hacking (with help on R, SQL and GitHub) 11:30-5pm
