What our followers are saying

In April 2021, I participated in the R for Ecologist Training run by EcoCommons. It was fantastic to be able to follow along. I tried to play with R and R studio on my own when I was doing my PhD, but I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. Having this workshop, especially for a novice, was really helpful.
