Developing dendroNetwork as a package was not a goal from the beginning, but looking back, I think that it should have been. I wish someone had suggested making a package to me much earlier. Why?

Dear rOpenSci community, This is a bit of a bittersweet announcement… After nearly 13 years, it’s time for me to step down as the Executive Director of rOpenSci. In the summer of 2011 I co-founded rOpenSci alongside a group of dedicated colleagues. What began as a casual collaboration among open science enthusiasts quickly evolved into something far more meaningful.

I am pleased, excited, and humbled to announce that I am stepping into the role of Executive Director of rOpenSci starting April 1. First, let me give my gratitude to our outgoing Executive Director and friend Karthik Ram for his leadership and mentorship running rOpenSci the past decade. He’s been a steady hand and visionary that helped our community accomplish so much together in this time.
