Suggested First Tasks
We reached out to rOpenSci and asked them what they suggest freshly minted rigor champions interested in becoming involved with their community do to get a sense of the culture and vision. These are listed below, and we strongly recommend giving them a shot!
Answer a question in our forum! (~5 to 10 minutes)
rOpenSci has an (r)open forum anyone is welcome to contribute, so if you’re looking to dip your toes into this community, browsing its contents and answering any questions you come across (or maybe even asking some of your own!) is a great way to get started.
Create a profile in r-universe!
One of the ways in which rOpenSci experiments with various new ideas for improving publication and discovery of research software is through r-universe, its experimental hub and package server. Create a profile to start exploring the r-frontier!
Apply for the Champions Program!
rOpenSci has a big focus on equity and inclusion, and its Champions Program is one of the initiatives aimed to express just that. It’s intended for people from historically and systematically excluded groups who are interested in contributing to rOpenSci and open source and open science communities more broadly. Check it out here!
Attend a co-working session or community call!
Since rOpenSci is a welcoming community, the best way for you to get involved is to — well, get involved! Join one of rOpenSci’s regular events and chat with like-minded people that can help show you around.
