# Event Summary
Want to learn how to build an R package, but aren't sure where to start? This workshop is for you! Run by R-Ladies Irvine, the goal of this workshop is to empower you to start contributing back to the R ecosystem with package development. An example package will be developed during the workshop so you can follow along and create your own. We’ll be using materials developed by Hadley Wickham, Jenny Bryan, and Di Cook.

In this workshop, we will cover package structure and set-up, creating functions, documentation, testing, dependencies, sharing your package with others, package vignettes/articles, hex stickers, and more!

If you have never built an R package before, we especially encourage you to come out. We'll walk you through the basics, and you'll leave having put together your first R package.

# Speakers
The leader of this workshop will be Alyssa Columbus, who currently maintains 3 R packages.

TAs for this workshop will be announced soon.
