For the fourth and last day of project recaps from this year’s unconf, here is an overview of the next five projects. (Full set of project recaps: recap 1, recap 2, recap 3, recap 4.) In the spirit of exploration and experimentation at rOpenSci unconferences, these projects are not necessarily finished products or in scope for rOpenSci packages. umapr Summary: umapr wraps the Python implementation of UMAP to make the algorithm accessible from within R, leveraging reticulate to interface with Python.

.rprofile: Julia Silge

Dr. Julia Silge [@juliasilge on Twitter] is a data scientist at Stack Overflow. We talked about why R brings Julia joy, her path to a career in data science and what it was like to co-write a book for O’Reilly Media. This interview occurred on February 3, 2018 at the RStudio Conference in San Diego. KO: What is your name, job title, and how long have you been using R?

Exploring, experimenting, and building software and trust at rOpenSci’s unconf18

  Stefanie Butland   | JUNE 5, 2018

We held our 5th annual unconference in Seattle, May 21-22, 2018 at Microsoft’s Reactor space. Researchers, students, postdocs and faculty, R software users and developers, and open data enthusiasts from academia, industry, government, and non-profits came together for two days to hack on projects they dreamed up and for an opportunity to meet and work together in person. We brought together 60 people from 11 countries in 5 continents - North and South America, Europe, Australia and Africa.
