Our Story

The R4DS Online Learning Community is a community of R learners at all skill levels working together to improve our skills.

We launched in August 2017 as a supportive and responsive online space for learners and mentors to gather and work through R for Data Science by Hadley Wickham, Mine Çetinkaya-Rundel, and Garrett Grolemund1.

The group has grown from that initial club into a community of over 10,000 learners.

Stay tuned for links to talks we have given about our various projects!
