2020-07-17 Hadley Wickham
We’re excited to announce that the call for talks for rstudio::global(2021) is now open! Since we’re rethinking the conference to make the most of the new venue, the talks are going to be a little different to usual.

We have never done a virtual event before and we’re feeling both nervous and excited. We will make rstudio::global() our most inclusive and global event, making the most of the freedom from geographical and economic constraints that comes with an online event. Read more →

A place for Python applications For data science teams looking to promote data-driven decision making within an organization, interactive applications built in R and Python are often the gold standard. These interactive tools, built by data science teams, are powerful when put in the hands of the right people, but they don’t do much good at all if they only run locally. R users who build Shiny applications hit this roadblock, and so do Python users working with tools like Dash, Bokeh, and Streamlit. Read more →
