RStudio is becoming Posit

Our name may be changing, but our commitment to helping data scientists use open source software to ask and answer important questions remains the same.

A larger community

The R community is a special place. We want to help more parts of science become as open, dynamic, inclusive, and diverse as the community we belong to.
