R Markdown Basics

1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

R Markdown files integrate text, Markdown, and R code into dynamic documents that weave together plain text, formatted text, and the output of the R code. The resulting dynamic reports can be produced in many formats, including HTML documents, HTML slideshows, LaTeX pdf, Beamer slideshows, MS Word doc, books, scientific articles, and websites. This seminar covers basic coding and conventions of the 3 frameworks upon which R Markdown depends: Markdown for formatting text, knitr for R code chunks, and YAML for rendering the document. The seminar does not assume any previous experience with R Markdown, but attendees who wish to participate in seminar demonstrations should come with RStudio and R Markdown installed on their computers.
