Open source contributions in the R community are an incredible way to learn and become part of a community. Often making these types of contributions are quite scary and one doesn't know quite where to begin. In this presentation, I will share the approaches I used to start contributing specifically focused in the finance space. I will also demonstrate some of the tools/analysis I have built along the way with lessons learned (both good and bad). In addition, I will lay out a path for all R community members to foster more collaboration and contribution in the R Finance community.
