The R Consortium exists to promote R as a language, environment and community. In order to answer some of the questions above and to help us understand our mission better we have put together the first of what we hope will be an annual survey of R users. This first attempt is a prototype. We don’t have any particular hypothesis or point of view. We would like to reach everyone who is interested in participating. So please, take a few minutes to take the survey yourself and help us get the word out. The survey will adapt depending on your answers, but will take about 10 minutes to complete.
Since its foundation just a little over two years ago, the R Consortium has been dedicated to providing support to the R Project and the R community. Already, the R Consortium has channeled the contributions from its corporate members to fund more than 25 projects, working groups, and community initiatives. Recently funded initiatives include a code coverage tool for R, improved connectivity between R and databases, new methods for handling spatial data, the R-hub package builder, and the SatRdays and R-Ladies community programs. (Many of these projects were presented at the recent useR!2017 conference in Brussels, which was awesome to see.)
Now, the R Consortium would like to year from you, the R user community, to help guide it directions. Please take a few minutes to take the R Consortium's Survey on R, and share your thoughts on the past, present and future of R. The R Consortium says this about the survey in a blog post by Joe Rickert and Hadley Wickham:
The R Consortium will also make an anonymized form of the data available to the community for analysis after the survey has closed.
