It’s official! I’m attending the upcoming RStudio conference. Not presenting. Just listening and learning. Real quick — here’s how I got ready.

  1. RStudio is using shed.com as the conference scheduler this year. Fortunately, we can easily pull out our personal schedules from the tool. Temporarily made my schedule public, then did web scraping using {rvest} to get the relevant HTML nodes.
  2. Copied my selected list of events over to my clipboard using {clipr}.
  3. Created some quarto files for note-taking with my agenda filled in. Ready for notes.
  4. Generated a QR code for my LinkedIn page using {qrcode}. Just in case for networking.

That’s all folks! GH repo linked below with scripts.

This is a short reflection exercise on the best R packages that I found out about and used in 2021, in no special order. I was late to the party on many of these packages, but I adore them now. I’ve used most of them in conjunction with the tidyverse set of packages, as you might guess. Links after the package name to explore further. Threw a few extra packages below.
