Anyone, regardless of experience with R or with R-Ladies Chicago is welcome to contribute to this blog. The only eligibility criteria is that contributors must identify as female or non-binary. Because this blog is intended for the same audience as R-Ladies Chicago Meetups, we recommend that you gear your blog posts towards this audience.
