    Why using {golem}?  Automate the boring stuff repetitive tasks

     Work with reliable tools  Gain time developing  Simplify deployment  Standardize team work About {golem} at ThinkR:  First built out of internal need, today used on a daily basis (I'm the #1 {golem} user)  We needed reliable and consistent tooling for deploying to our clients' environments  Build collective intelligence and share good practices globally  Promote R & Shiny in production Why {golem}?
