It’s easy to come to a conference and feel intimidated by the wealth of knowledge and expertise of other attendees. As Ellen Ullman, a software engineer and writer describes,1 I was aware at all times that I had only islands of knowledge separated by darkness; that I was surrounded by chasms of not-knowing, into one of which I was certain to fall. One of the best ways to start feeling less intimidated is to start talking to others.

When JSON is turned into an R object, it usually becomes a deeply nested list riddled with missing values that is difficult to untangle into a tidy format.

  Karthik Ram   | JUNE 6, 2018

As part of our series summarizing all projects from this year’s unconf I’m excited to dive into all the security related offerings from this year. (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. middlechild Summary: This package provides an R interface to the Man-in-the-middle (MITM) proxy and allows R users to intercept, modify, and introspect network traffic.
