About this Event:

We are going to be exploring how to use R-markdown and R-Notebooks.

Have been wondering what these tools are? Have you heard about them, but don’t know where to start? This meet-up will introduce you to the basics and some tricks and tips to make amazing documents containing all your data-analysis and much more! After a brief introduction on the tool and how to use it, we will have some hands-on experience with R-Markdown.

By the end of the meetup you will have created R-markdown and R-notebooks, so don’t forget to have R and Rstudio installed ready to go!

With R-Markdown you can create documents that contain all your code as well as all of the results from that code, thus making your data analysis entirely reproducible. However, R-markdown can do much more than that. It is a tool that helps you during data analysis. It allows you to create a script with all your data analysis pipeline that you can play with as you try different statistical or visualisation methods. The great advantage, as opposed to standard R-scripts, it is that you can add text between your code to create amazing documents that you can personalise with just a few clicks. At the meetup participants will have hands-on experience on how to use these tools.

Please note that the training is aimed at people who have attended the R introductory workshop or have some basic R knowledge.
