Meet You Where You R

January 30, 2020

At RStudio, we wake up and go to bed thinking about the positive impact that open source work and data science has had and can have on the world. To maximize this impact, we find three areas of investment absolutely critical to ensure our open source community keeps up with the world’s changes and outlives us all: 1. Find ways to make R more approachable. 2. Enable teams of all types & sizes (educational, professional, etc.) to be able to leverage the work they’re doing in R, and effortlessly communicate that work to others. 3. Extend the language so our open-source community can continue to be at the forefront of innovation, no matter their preference of tool or language. Underpinning these investments is also the core belief that every data scientist, regardless of skill level, use-case, or professional experience, is an asset to our community. Whether you’re a student currently learning R, a Python fan looking to become multilingual, or the Head of Data Science at NASA, we want you to become a part of our journey. In return, we’ll do our best to ensure that journey is a fulfilling endeavor. This presentation will take a deeper dive into the ways in which you can utilize RStudio's educational offerings and enterprise toolchain in personal, educational, and corporate settings. educational offerings and enterprise toolchain in personal, educational, and corporate settings.
