R-Ladies is a worldwide organization to promote gender diversity in the R community. Our mission is to achieve proportionate representation by encouraging, inspiring, and empowering the minorities currently underrepresented in the R community.
R-Ladies Charlottesville welcomes members of all R proficiency levels, whether you're a new or aspiring R user, or an experienced R programmer interested in mentoring, networking, and expert upskilling. Our non-profit, civil society community is designed to develop our members' R skills & knowledge through social, collaborative learning & sharing.

Curious about package development, but not sure where to start? Have a few packages under your belt but unsure of what to do with them? This workshop is for you! Run by R-Ladies Charlottesville, the goal of this workshop is to empower you to start contributing back to the R ecosystem with package development. We’ll be using materials developed by Hadley Wickham, Jenny Bryan, and Di Cook for the FoRwards teaching team. https://forwards.github.io/edu/
By the end of this three-hour workshop, you should know how to:
- Make your code into an R package,
- Do collaborative coding with GitHub,
- Write a vignette or an article,
- Write tests, error messages, and documentation, and
- Submit a package to CRAN.
Bring your own code that you want to make into a package, or work with our example.
