Summer interns

2018-02-12 Hadley Wickham
We are excited to announce the first formal summer internship program at RStudio. The goal of our internship program is to enable RStudio employees to collaborate with current students (broadly construed: if you think of yourself as a student you quality) to create impactful and useful applications that will help both RStudio users and the broader R community, and help ensure that the community of R developers is representative of the community of R users.

Over the past year we’ve been hard at work on creating R interfaces to TensorFlow, an open-source machine learning framework from Google. We are excited about TensorFlow for many reasons, not the least of which is its state-of-the-art infrastructure for deep learning applications. In the 2 years since it was initially open-sourced by Google, TensorFlow has rapidly become the framework of choice for both machine learning practitioners and researchers. On Saturday, we formally announced our work on TensorFlow during J. Read more →

pool package on CRAN

2017-11-17 Bárbara Borges
The pool package makes it easier for Shiny developers to connect to databases. Up until now, there wasn’t a clearly good way to do this. As a Shiny app author, if you connect to a database globally (outside of the server function), your connection won’t be robust because all sessions would share that connection (which could leave most users hanging when one of them is using it, or even all of them if the connection breaks).

R-Admins Community

2017-11-03 Hadley Wickham
Today we’re pleased to announce a new category of community.rstudio.com dedicated to R administrators: https://community.rstudio.com/c/r-admin. There are already multiple places where you can get help with R, Shiny, the RStudio IDE, and the tidyverse. There are, however, far fewer resources for R admins: people who work with R in production, in large organizations, and in complex environments. We hope this new category will serve as a useful and friendly place to connect with fellow R admins to discuss the issues they deal with. Read more →
