What is the correct form when referring to the expertise of a user (e.g. in programming, writing)?
- user's expertise
- user expertise
If you mean the expertise of a particular user, then it would be the user's expertise, but if you mean the general concept of expertise developed by users, then user expertise would be clearer. For the general concept, you could, however, also say users' expertise, or perhaps users' collective expertise.
