SAN FRANCISCO, March 3, 2020 – The R Consortium, a Linux Foundation project supporting the R Foundation and R community, today announced that ThinkR has joined the R Consortium as a Silver Member. ThinkR provides R engineering, training, and consulting, and is based in France.
“We provide R Language infrastructure, engineering and training to our clients, and at the same time we believe it is important to give back to the R community by participating in open source projects, holding meetups and training, and promoting R in many ways. Joining the R Consortium will help us to expand our support for R even more, and allow us to work toward building better R infrastructure that helps R developers and our customers,” said Diane Beldame, CEO, ThinkR. “Joining the R Consortium will allow us to better support and promote the R community and that is a big benefit for our clients.”
ThinkR developers devote a part of their time to R and Data Science communities. This includes supporting various R packages on Github, holding meetups and other conferences connected to R, posting development tips on the ThinkR blog, and responding on Stackoverflow and other Slack communities.
“We are excited to welcome ThinkR to the R Consortium. ThinkR is on the front lines of providing R to industries in ways that immediately contribute to their customers’ success,” said Joseph Rickert, RStudio’s R Community Ambassador and R Consortium Board Chair. “At the same time, ThinkR contributes to the R community with open source projects and much more, and we’re very pleased they will be involved in moving the R Consortium forward.”
