Join us for 2 hours Tuesday November 07, 09:00 Americas Pacific (17:00 UTC) for Social Coworking + Office Hours

This month we’re focusing on the theme Fixing scary bugs ๐Ÿ˜ฑ ๐Ÿ› with community host Salix Dubois, maintainer of the rOpenSci bold package.

Come for the full 2 hrs or only as long as you need!


  • Identify some scary bugs to fix (maybe ask for help!)
  • Fix some scary bugs (in your packages/scripts, or chat with a maintainer about helping them)
  • Cowork independently on work related to R
    • Plan out that package youโ€™ve always wanted to create
    • Work on packages that tend to be neglected
    • What ever you need to get done!


  • Meet community host, Salix Dubois, and discuss tips and tricks for identifying and fixing scary bugs.
  • Meet other R users and rOpenSci staff in Zoom
  • Get answers to your questions
    • Ask your hosts
    • Ask your fellow coworkers
    • Discuss your work, best practices, or get advice and resources
  • Answer other coworkers’ questions!

We host Social Coworking + Office Hours on the first Tuesday of each month, alternating among timezones to accommodate different parts of the world.
