We work mainly with open source software and try to give back to the community by contributing to the R packages system. Our tools are available on CRAN and on github.
It’s a volunteer activity and we do not impose ourself any schedule on that. We are dedicating a days per week, sometimes more when burned by enthusiasm.
We follow some tags on stackoverflow.com and try to resolve any bugs found by our users and requests for changes.
The benefits for us
We are involved in the community and stay informed about the evolution of the R ecosystem.
We are constantly progressing with the open source and data science community. We choose the problems that will make us progressing and that bring something usefull for R users.
We are proud and happy to have a community of users, it’s not nothing!
