Getting started with R Markdown

January 28, 2016

Cut and paste for reporting doesn’t cut it anymore!

In this webinar you’ll learn to write reports quickly and effectively with the R Markdown package. Using R Markdown you’ll be able to generate reports straight from your R code, documenting your work — and its results — as an HTML, pdf, slideshow, or Microsoft Word document.

We’ll see how to combine code and text into a single R Markdown file, the perfect document format for automated reporting and reproducible research. The .Rmd file retains all of your code for reproducibility, but lets you set how the code and its results will appear in the final report. Best of all, R Markdown reports are parameterizable. You can apply the same report to multiple data sets.
