RStudio is a company dedicated to providing software, education, and services for the R statistical computing environment. We started RStudio because we were excited and inspired by R.
The creators of R provided a flexible and powerful foundation for statistical computing; then made it free and open so that it could be improved collaboratively and its benefits could be shared by the widest possible audience.
It's better for everyone if the tools used for research and science are free and open. There are many benefits to free software in science: improved reproducibility, wider sharing of knowledge and techniques, and elimination of cost barriers to create a more level playing field, to name just a few. The members of our team actively work on several open-source software projects that enhance R, including the RStudio IDE (a development environment for R) as well as the ggplot2 and plyr packages (among many others).
Another core focus of our company is education. We want to help R users become excellent programmers and excellent scientists who can solve important problems with data. We offer a series of courses ranging from Intro to data science with R to Advanced R programming, all of which we deliver in public venues and as customized on-site offerings. Many of us at RStudio were psychologists and educators before we fell in love with R. We know the best ways to help people learn, and we use them to teach R in enjoyable and effective ways. We are also very active in writing books and articles on R.
We are also planning to offer a wide variety of services many of which will be announced over the next year. This will include online courses, an enhanced version of RPubs.com, and additional services that will make it easy to build and deploy custom R applications, access more compute resources on-demand, and adopt R within larger organizations.
R users are doing some of the most innovative and important work in science, education, and industry. It’s a daily inspiration and challenge to keep up with the community and all it is accomplishing. Our goal as a company is to empower users to learn and be productive with R and then to tackle the toughest and most interesting problems with R. Let us know what you are doing with R and how we can help!
