Jumping Rivers and WhyR partnership

We love supporting the community around the open source tools that we use on a daily basis. In the past, Jumping Rivers has helped useR user groups and SatRdays events to happen by enabling frictionless sponsorship for European groups. We believe that it is our duty to help grow the community that helps us. With that in mind, it is our honour to announce that we are proudly sponsoring a new season of events hosted by WhyR.

WhyR is a team of R enthusiasts coming from both business and academia who aim to support local R communities around the world. The foundation organises events focusing on the worldwide use of R statistical software such as conferences, hackathons and webinars. The initiative is well known by their remarkable commitment to knowledge and diversion for the R programming language and open source sphere.

Their main goals are:

  • spreading knowledge about the R statistical package,
  • supporting programs and pro-development initiatives in the fields of economics, mathematics, statistics and data science to serve educational activities,
  • supporting cooperation between the scientific and business environment.

We find those align well with the Jumping Rivers mission and are delighted to work beside such an honourable organisation.

Stay tuned on our Twitter and LinkedIn to hear more about the events.

All webinars will be streamed at WhyR’s Youtube page.
