R Markdown Introduction Workshop: FOWI Academy

Thursday March 10, 2022, 1PM — 3PM
78 Murray Street, Level 2 Room 213
Presenter: Dr Michael David Wilson

RMarkdown is a tool for building dynamic documents in the R Programming Language. It enables you to connect the output from statistical analyses directly into documents like Microsoft Word, PDFs, websites, or presentations. Rmarkdown has many uses, including: automating your results-section writeup, building easily updatable webpages of analyses for stakeholders, and even simplifying the process of building websites or typesetting professional-looking books!

This session is targeted at beginners and will introduce you to the basics of Rmarkdown and its different applications (incl. reproducibility and literate programming) using interactive exercises and a “follow along” tutorial. Time will be dedicated to questions and extended demonstrations.

list.of.packages <- c("tidyverse", "rmarkdown", "knitr", "kableExtra", "qwraps2", "apa", "skimr")
new.packages <- list.of.packages[!(list.of.packages %in% installed.packages()[,"Package"])]
