Opening

This is our last newsletter as RStudio — the next time this newsletter lands in your inbox, we’ll be Posit! As with any transition, I’m excited about what’s ahead and also grateful for everything that has led to getting here. We asked employees what the name RStudio meant to them, and of course there was ‘hexagon’, but there was also ‘community’, ‘encouragement’, ‘welcoming’, ‘collaboration’, ‘creativity’, ‘growth’, ‘purpose’, ‘tools’ and ‘open source’. Those are things that won’t change—the who we are and how we work (and the hexagons) — and I can’t wait to see what we create together next.
