The 2019 RStudio conference, rstudio::conf, was definitely one of the best conferences I’ve ever attended. The other attendees are the nicest and the talks were useful and well put together. However, I don’t feel like I got the most out of it. This blog post intends to be some basics facts for setting expectations and tricks for getting more out of the conference. This is mainly for people going to another RStudio conference (here’s looking at you, future me), but maybe not people that really have it together.
