rOpenSci Community Calls

Join us in our quarterly Community Calls to hear about best practices, new projects, Q&As with well known developers, and to learn more about rOpenSci developments. These are free and open for anyone to attend and provide an opportunity to connect with rOpenSci community members around the world.

We aim to leave at least 20 minutes for open Q&A and we use collaborative note-taking allowing participants share ideas or resources and to ask questions.
