RStudio Inc becomes RStudio PBC, expands data science product focus with Python support
FEBRUARY 4 2020 | By Krishna Roy
From the report:
"RStudio Connect’s ability to host Python content, including Python Notebooks, is another fruit of the firm’s strategy to support Python-based data science. RStudio Connect is the company’s publishing environment. It used to be for publishing all work a company’s data team carried out in R, but now the offering will support data science and analytics performed in Python, too."
"RStudio’s move to embrace Python as well as R is gradual and ongoing. The company is keen to get away from the idea that it is merely serving R devotees and is an R advocate by infusing Python support into core offerings within its data science platform. RStudio is also getting involved with the Python open source community, as well as the R one."
"The company has changed its corporate status from a C corporation to a benefit corporation, and has shifted its product focus beyond the R open source programming language to support Python open source-based data science."
