Learn how to contribute to R!
The Collaboration Campfires are online collaborative events to open pathways for members of groups currently underrepresented in the R project. The goal is to demystify the R development process and highlight ways that R programmers can contribute, with a focus on low-level contributions in terms of time commitment and prerequisite knowledge.
The current series is planned in the run-up to the useR! 2022 online conference, where we plan to hold a satellite global contribution event: the Bug Barbecue!
The Collaboration Campfires will be on the 4th Tuesday of every month from February to May 2022. The 90 minute Zoom sessions will start at 15:30 UTC. Note: many countries switch to daylight savings time either before the March meeting or before the April meeting.
If you are a member of the R-Ladies, MiR, ArabR, AfricaR, AsiaR, or LatinR communities, or otherwise identify as part of an underrepresented group among R contributors, then we especially encourage you to participate! Anyone from the general R community that respects and supports the aims of these events is also welcome to attend.
Registration is free. Click the button to register for individual or multiple events and receive a calendar invite.
If you have a friend or colleague who might be interested in attending the Collaboration Campfires, then why not invite them along!
If you have any questions about the events, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on the R-devel Slack.
The Collaboration Campfires are part of the project Building Community around the R Development Guide, supported by the Digital Infrastructure Incubator at Code for Science & Society (CS&S). The project is led by Saranjeet Kaur Bhogal and Heather Turner, and mentored by Rayya El Zein. Members of partner communities and the R Contribution Working Group have contributed to the organisation, and will provide expert and peer support during the sessions.
As CS&S events, their [code of conduct](Guidelines for community participation & Code of Conduct: (https://eventfund.codeforscience.org/code-of-conduct/) will apply to these sessions.
