No prior knowledge expected. Example will be about building documentation for R software but any developper, using any programming language may be interested in the method adopted.
Sébastien Rochette has a PhD in marine ecology. After a few years has a researcher in ecology, he joined ThinkR (https://rtask.thinkr.fr), a company giving courses and consultancy around the R-software. Along with commercial activities, he is highly involved in the development of open-source R packages. He also shares his experience with the R-community through free tutorials, blog posts, online help and other conferences. https://statnmap.com/

I wrote a blog post in French about what I am planning to present: https://thinkr.fr/transformer-plusieurs-scripts-eparpilles-en-beau-package-r/
This topic is also related to another blog post: https://rtask.thinkr.fr/when-development-starts-with-documentation/
Links to previous talks by the speaker
Talks about R are in my Github repository: https://github.com/statnmap/prez/. The "README" lists talks that have a live recorded video.
As a researcher, I also gave multiple talks about marine science, modelling and other topics related to my research.
Please note that this talk was originally scheduled to be at 17h. The talk originally in this slot was "Developing from the field." by Audrey Baneyx and Robin de Mourat which will now take place at 17h.
