Our community is our best asset

We are building a welcoming and diverse global community of software users and developers from a range of research domains. We aim to build capacity of novices, experts, and the “nexperts” in between. We welcome participation and civil conversations that adhere to our code of conduct. There are many ways to get involved.

Follow us on Twitter. Read our blog to learn about our software packages, best practices, events and the people who make up our community, or read our Contributing Guide to learn how you can contribute to rOpenSci as a user or developer. Subscribe to rOpenSci News to get semi-monthly updates on our activities sent to your inbox.

Ask and answer #rstats questions on our discussion forum, on Stackoverflow, or Twitter. Attend our Community Calls to hear about best practices, Q & As with well known developers, and to learn more about rOpenSci developments. These are free and open for anyone to attend and provide an opportunity to connect with rOpenSci community members around the world.

Use our software. Improve package documentation or code. Review a package. Submit your package for open software peer review. Apply to participate in our annual unconference.
