RStudio makes another high-profile hire

Last fall, when RStudio announced that well-known package authors Jenny Bryan and Max Kuhn were joining the company, I asked Chief Scientist Hadley Wickham what was up. “The plan isn’t to add anyone else to my team in the near future,” he said in late November.

Another familiar name in the R community, Gábor Csárdi, is joining Wickham’s team, Wickham announced on Twitter.
