I ended up down a #programming-oriented rabbithole and I'm just *so* impressed with some resources that out there, free as in beer (and often #FOSS/#libre).

@kai Pretty much everything listed here: numfocus.org/sponsored-project

But in particular, that nbviewer.jupyter.org exists: free execution and interactive hosting of jupyter.org notebooks, which makes Shiny in #rLang somewhat unnecessary.

@bthall I think most of this is over my head but it sounds neat

@kai Well I'm kinda mostly excited that the hosting thing is free :B I wanted to setup a simple tool for Econ students using #rLang and Shiny, but Shiny's hosts have low usage limits for free users, so I'm like \o/


@bthall most important thing: BEST PRICE

@bthall I heard this spoken during an interview with a Chinese factory owner in heavily accented English.

Any time someone implies that they are price-sensitive, I recite it. 🤓
