R<->python transpiler

Not scheduled


Dmitrii Borisevich (Copenhagen University)


Python and R are two major programming languages used for research software development and data analysis in bioinformatics. It is not a symbiotic relationship, but a cold war between the fans of both.

Different tools are available to use R in python and vice versa, but they demand learning both languages. This is not easy, and thus rarely adopted.

This lightning talk will pitch an idea of using AST to build a transpiler between two languages and showcase a simple demo of converting code written in one language directly into another.
