The (Delayed) 2019 Training Review

Don’t we all miss 2019 (blame Covid for the long delay in this post). The days of going to work and seeing your work colleagues face to face - and for some of you, attending one of our on-site training courses! 2019 was a great year for us. Not only have we broken new boundaries, we have recruited new full-time staff which have furthermore contributed to the glowing success of the company.

Detecting Security Vulnerabilities in R Packages

One of our main roles at Jumping Rivers is to set-up and provide ongoing maintenance to R, Python and RStudio infrastructure. This typically involves ensuring software is up-to-date and making sure everything is running smoothly. The OSS Index developed by Sonatype is a free catalogue of open source components and scanning tools to help developers identify vulnerabilities, understand risk, and keep their software safe. The {oysteR} package is an R interface to the OSS Index that allows users to scan their installed R packages.
