RStudio adds a new Starter Plan, More Active Hours, and a Performance Boost to shinyapps.io

2015-08-24 Roger Oberg
Five months ago we launched shinyapps.io. Since then, more than 25,000 accounts have been created and countless Shiny applications have been deployed. It’s incredibly exciting to see! It’s also given us lots of data and feedback on how we can make shinyapps.io better. Today, we’re happy to tell you about some changes to our subscription Plans that we hope will make shinyapps.io an even better experience for Shiny developers and their application users.

Secure HTTPS Connections for R

2015-08-17 RStudio Team
Traditionally, the mechanisms for obtaining R and related software have used standard HTTP connections. This isn’t ideal though, as without a secure (HTTPS) connection there is less assurance that you are downloading code from a legitimate source rather than from another server posing as one. Recently there have been a number of changes that make it easier to use HTTPS for installing R, RStudio, and packages from CRAN: Downloads of R from the main CRAN website now use HTTPS; Read more →

2015-08-03 Roger Oberg
The Joint Statistics Meetings starting August 8 is the biggest meetup for statisticians in the world. Navigating the sheer quantity of interesting talks is challenging - there can be up to 50 sessions going on at a time!

Accelerating R: RStudio and the new R Consortium

2015-06-30 RStudio Team
To paraphrase Yogi Berra, “Predicting is hard, especially about the future”.

It’s impossible to know where R will go in the next 20 years, but at RStudio we’re working hard to make sure the future is bright. Today, we’re excited to announce our participation in the R Consortium, a new 501©6 nonprofit organization. Read more →

Sometimes the universe surprises us. In this case, it was in a good way and we genuinely appreciated it. Earlier this week we learned that the Infoworld Testing Center staff selected RStudio as one of 32 recipients of the 2015 Technology of the Year Award. We thought it was cool because it was completely unsolicited, we’re in very good company (some of our favorite technologies like Docker, Github, node.js…even my Dell XPS 15 Touch! Read more →
