R Users & R-Ladies GSoC Dashboard – preview

This project has been featured in the R-Consortium blog!

I recently completed my mentorship with Dr. Claudia Vitolo of Google Summer of Code 2019 (GSoC 2019) mentee, Ben Ubah. Ben designed a Travis Continuous Integration and JavaScript-based dashboard for R-Ladies, R Users, and GSoC R-Consortium projects. The R-Ladies meetupr package was strongly leveraged.

TravisCI updates the dashboards at about 6 AM EDT.

A quick preview of a future post concerning that data. I am currently focusing on R-Ladies user groups but I have a comment about general R user groups at the bottom of this post.

Prior to 8/13/2019 publication of https://www.r-consortium.org/blog/2019/08/12/r-community-explorer.

Maybe early August, 2019 after the R-Consortium post. Notice 2 new R-Ladies chapters.

September 9, 2019 update Dashboard developer Ben Ubah updated his strength matching to consider the ‘topics’ field from the Meetup API and possibly manually added https://www.meetup.com/lagosrusers/ (as found on Twitter) and “Hans Borchers reported a group that was missing in Germany within this week” (Ben’s words).

The additions’ impact is seen by comparing the updated dashboard

to the former dashboard
