Objectives: Collaborate on existing and new R and Python packages. We will collect feedback from the course participants and lecturers and then start implementing or at least planning R / Python developments initiatives. The workshop might be focused more on discussion, but we might also split in smaller groups and then actually start developing code straight away. No classes will be given, the program will completely be maintained by the participants.

Workshop moderator: T. Hengl

Who is invited: Anyone registered on some project on R-forge (which is free!). There are no fees to join this workshop, but you do need to sign-up for it. There will be no live broadcast of this workshop.
Please bring with you materials / prepare slides or demos that you would like to share.
