useR2019 materials

This file contains links to materials from all tutorials, some talks and a few posters from useR 2019. For talks, the official site now has links to most slides and soon also links to videos, so you'd probably want to look there first :)

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this repo, especially Sarah Musy (@musy_n) who shared many links and @gregrs-uk who helped fix some of my mistakes! Please feel free to make a pull request, add an issue, or tweet @s_owla :)

Note: I started this repo because I found materials from rstudio::conf 2019 that @kwbroman and others collected so helpful!
