For a general motivation and introduction to the key concepts, watch Hadley’s rstudio::global(2021) keynote “Maintaining the house that the tidyverse built”.

vignette("manage") to learn how to manage lifecycle changes in functions that you use.
vignette("communicate") to learn how to communicate lifecycle changes in the functions you write.
