    Hi everyone! Just joined the slack. Super excited about diving into flyte and learning how to use it more. I see it being very useful in my upcoming roll!

    Or even a way to call r code via an RTask like the ShellTask

    there are a few ways
    we could do it via r package and reticulate

    Yup, I think before a full fledged sdk, we should support this. This can be simple

    @Kirk Gosik also let Rachael Dempsey and Tareef from RStudio know that you want Flyte support.

    it’s not super seamless, i.e. you need to read and parse inputs from stdin and write outputs to stdout + you need to package up the R code in a docker container, but it’ll work
