Stencila is trying to make reproducible research more widespread by making it more accessible. Stencila Sheets provide a familiar spreadsheet interface but are built from the ground up to leverage the power of languages like R, Python, and SQL, and with reproducibility at their core. We want to show you what we are building, but we are also looking for the opinions, experiences, and ideas of people who work with data across various research domains.

  • What are the great things about spreadsheets? Why are they used by so many researchers?
  • What problems do spreadsheets have? What are the challenges to making them more reproducible?
  • If you could start over, what would you change about spreadsheets? Which features of conventional spreadsheet software would you change? What would you add? What would you take away?

Join us to share your ideas and help shape Stencila Sheets... and the future of reproducible research!

Stencila is an open source project funded by a grant from the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, under the umbrella of the Oregon-based non-profit Code for Science & Society.
