Hadley will talk about how the tidyverse has evolved since its creation (just five years ago!). You’ll learn about our greatest successes, learn from our biggest failures, and get some hints of what’s coming down the pipeline for the future.
Hadley is Chief Scientist at Posit PBC, winner of the 2019 COPSS award, and a member of the R Foundation. He builds tools (both computational and cognitive) to make data science easier, faster, and more fun. His work includes packages for data science (like the tidyverse, which includes ggplot2, dplyr, and tidyr)and principled software development (e.g. roxygen2, testthat, and pkgdown). He is also a writer, educator, and speaker promoting the use of R for data science.
