Friday, November 17, the CEO of the open-source software company Stencila will be visiting us from 2 to 5pm in the Scholarly Innovation Lab. Stencila is trying to make reproducible research more widespread by making it more accessible. Stencila Sheets provide a familiar spreadsheet interface but are built from the ground up to leverage the power of languages like R, Python, and SQL, and with reproducibility at their core.
The CEO of Stencila and the other reps would love to speak with you and get your feedback on the product they’re building, which is meant to be supercharged spreadsheet software that includes programming functions. They want to show you what we are building, but are also looking for the opinions, experiences, and ideas of people who work with data across various research domains. They’ve also said they’d be happy to talk with you about careers in open-source software, data science, and the non-profit tech sector. Grad students, the rep from Stencila is a humanities Ph.D. who’s happy to talk with you about careers in the non-profit tech sector. And, there will be a happy hour afterwards!
