Back to Basics: R you markDOWN?

Monday, June 26, 2017 - 18:30
New York Open Statistical Programming Meetup
New York

We are very excited to have three-time conference speaker, and long time meetup member, Dan Chen presenting for the first time at the meetup.  He'll be talking about RMarkdown, starting with the basics and working into advanced uses, such as building the meetup's new website.

About the talk:

RMarkdown allows you to create dynamic reports that interweave (R) code and prose text into a single document. It's come a long way over the years, and can be used for more than literate programming, all while using simple markdown notation. You can make documents, reports, dashboards, presentations, books, and even websites!

We will go "back to the basics," and start from what is markdown and reproducible documents, and move on to show how the "basics" all tie into all the other presentation formats.

About Dan:

Daniel is currently a PhD Student at Virginia Tech in Genetics, Bioinformatics, and Computational Biology. His current area of research involves how ideas and behaviors spread in social networks. He is a Data Scientist with Lander Analytics,
and also serves as a DevOps Engineer in his research lab, the Social and Decision Analytics Laboratory, in Arlington, VA.

Pizza begins at 6:30, the talk starts at 7, then after we head to the local bar. 

Thank you to Work-Bench for hosting.

Despite the difficulties with audio we will continue attempting live broadcasts and will hopefully resolve all the problems.

A big thank you to O'Reilly for sponsoring us again.  They have two upcoming conferences and have given our group 20% discounts to both with code UGNYHACKR20.  The first is the AI Conference, June 26-29.  The second is JupyterCon August 22-25.  The code UGNYHACKR20 works for both.
