How does someone make the leap from learning R to actively applying R in professional work? At what point (if ever!) do we get to call ourselves “experts in R?

This talk explores what differentiates novice, practitioner, and expert R programmers, and how transitions between these stages occur. I’ll discuss the type of support required for R users to move from one level of expertise to the next, and how different types of training and documentation can support R users at each level.

Understanding variable levels of education among R practitioners supports our own professional work, from collaborative coding to package development, and helps build a bigger, more inclusive R community.
