Gender Diversity in R and Python Package Contributors

Introduction Over the last few years I have really enjoyed becoming part of the R community. One of the best things about the community is the welcoming, inclusive and supportive nature of it. I can’t speak for other communities in the computer or data science worlds but I am well aware of the “brogrammer” culture in some circles that can be off-putting at times. The rise of codes of conduct across the open source world is changing things for the better, I think.
