  • 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, Zhian Kamvar, and chat about the pros and cons of Git & GitHub, resources for getting started and tips and tricks.
  • Meet other R users and rOpenSci staff in Zoom
  • Get answers to your questions
    • Ask your hosts
    • Ask your fellow coworkers
