Robin Kohze and Samuel Schmidt, theme Nanomedicine, have been awarded two Google Summer of Code Grants.

They received this grant for the mentorship of the projects in the category “R projects for statistical computing“, entitled (1) “Firedata - Implementing Web Functionalities for Shiny and OpenCPU”, and (2) “Firedata - Enabling Easy Cloud Stats through Cloud Firestore”.

One of the main reasons for the increase of R’s popularity is the fast, efficient and intuitive way to work with datasets. Our Firebase API package for R named Firedata, which we successfully developed for the Google SOC project in 2017, connects R to the Google Firebase environment and provides R users a stable & intuitive database option for the development of countless applications. Project 1 aims to integrate Firedata into the Google Cloud Firestore and equip the Firedata package with novel Firebase APIs and features. Project 2 will among others integrate Firedata into statistical web applications. Our overall goal is to provide a simple and intuitive way to deploy R applications.
The awarded grant money will be used for the project development.
