R is a great resource for data management, statistics, analysis, and visualization — and it becomes better every day. This is to a large part because of the active community that continuously creates and builds extensions for the R world. If you want to contribute to this community, writing a package can be one way. That is exactly what Dennis Hammerschmidt and I showcase in our newest blog post with our package overviewR. We provide a step-by-step guide — seasoned with new and helpful packages that are also inspired by presentations at the recent virtual European R Users Meeting e-Rum 2020.

The blog post is also featured as a highlight in R Weekly.
