Join us for 2 hours Tuesday December 05, 09:00 Australian Western (01:00 UTC) for Social Coworking + Office Hours

This month we’re focusing on the theme Why won’t it pass?! Troubleshooting R package checks with community host Adam Sparks, maintainer of rOpenSci packages GSODR and nasapower and one who has the dubious honour of having troubleshooted many problematic package checks 😸.

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


  • Explore what R package checks are and where they might fail
  • Work on an R package and run some checks
  • Spend some time troubleshooting your own failing package checks
  • Cowork independently on work related to R
    • Plan out that package you’ve always wanted to create
    • Work on packages that tend to be neglected
    • What ever you need to get done!


  • Meet community host, Adam Sparks, and discuss tips and tricks for troubleshooting package checks
  • Try some group troubleshooting on failing checks you just can’t figure out
  • 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.
