Call to Arms: Renjin, R Implementation on JVM Needs Contributions

Until yesterday I didn’t know there’s an attempt to implement the R language on the JVM. But there’s one: renjin. And it sounds like it needs some helping hands to accomplish its goal of reaching a 1.0 release in 2012.

In case you’d wonder why R on the JVM—same question have been asked so many times related to JRuby, Jython, etc—just think of:

  • it would allow access to the tons of Java libraries
  • it would integrate seamlessly with tools like Hadoop

If you are ready to start contributing head on to the Renjin’s plan of attack for 2012 page and learn where your help would be needed.
