So I recently attended the yearly R conference called useR! It was a great experience to attend presentations of the developers of many packages that I have been using. I especially enjoyed hearing Hadley Wickham (tidyverse/dplyr/ggplot2), Lionel Henry (rlang/tidy-eval), Romain François (dplyr), Terry Therneau (survival) and Achim Zeileis (colorspace).
Lionel Henry’s talk got me inspired to learn more about tidy-eval and how it is used to write functions in the tidyverse! This seems relevant to me since I have been repeating a bunch of code in my projects and been having some issues in converting that code into functions, guess I have found my solution!
