Ella Kaye

Getting help with R

R is a big and constantly developing language. For new users, there can be a steep learning curve. Even experienced R users often find themselves getting stuck. That may be figuring out how to do something in R that you think, surely, must be possible. Or it could be that you're faced with an error message that you don't understand and don't know how to get past.

Thankfully, the R community is helpful and friendly! This talk will consider where you can look for and ask for help, how to make it easy for the community to help you (reproducible examples!) and tools to make getting help even easier (the `reprex` package.)
