Our first cohort of the rOpenSci Champions Program has now completed the first phase of their training.One of the goals of this program was to ensure that all participants gained new skills and understanding.We wanted to support Champions and Mentors, but also those who applied to the program but were not selected.Therefore we ensured that all groups had access to different training opportunities.

Summary Installing a package that has just been released to CRAN is painful for many users on Mac and Windows because often the difference between a ‘binary’ and a ‘source’ version is not immediately clear and they end up trying to install the source version, which leads to errors and heartbreak.When I was designing The Carpentries Workbench, I needed to make sure that people could reliably install R packages at any time

Many researchers are becoming more aware of the importance of reproducibility.Although reproducibility involves a diverse array of topics and tools, one rOpenSci package has gained considerable attention for enabling reproducible analysis pipelines in R: targets, by Will Landau.Why a targets workshop?

We are pleased to open the call for the second cohort of Champions and Mentors for the rOpenSci Champions Program 🎉 ! This program will continue to support our goal of identifying, recognizing, and rewarding passionate community members who help the community grow and improve.

We first introduced our Coworking andOffice Hour sessions in August 2021 after a successful pilot of several’label-athon’s in the April and May prior. We’ve had a successful couple of years since then and the coworking sessionshave evolved into themed events with different community hosts and me asa facilitator. It’s been a lovely change and we thought it was time to share these updates with the rOpenSci community! 🎉What are these sessions?
