May I interest you in ... R?
One of the reasons we love visiting conferences is to hear and learn something new, right? So, why not learn something brand new? Why not learn a bit or two about ... R language?
R is most widely used for statistics and machine learning. And yet, I think that's a pity. It's a pity because language is beautiful, has amazing set of packages and libraries and is built as purely functional language (although you can use OOP if you want).
Additionally, one beautiful thing about learning new languages is that you, usually, get inspired. You get inspired to try something new in your language of choice and, who knows, we might end up with something revolutionary, can't we?
