This meetup is being held on Thursday 31sr October 1-3pm by Meirian Lovelace-Tozer from Research Platform Services.
About this Event:
You told us you wanted a knitr/Sweave event and we listened!
Don’t miss out on this great opportunity to learn some tips and tricks for using knitr/Sweave and to get to know the community that is actively using R for research!
We will give a short introduction to knitr and Sweave and showcase some of their applications.
Sweave and knitr are engines for generating reports with R which are elegant, flexible, and fast dynamic. They are also packages in R that enable integration of R code into not only LaTeX and LyX, but also HTML, Markdown, AsciiDoc, and reStructuredText documents.
Please note that attendees are expected to have some familiarity/experience with R. If you are new to R, consider attending an R Introductory Workshop.
No LaTeX knowledge is required; however if you are interested in learning LaTeX, we're also running a workshop immediately prior to this event.
If you have used knitr or Sweave before, we would love to see what you've achieved!
If you are interested in helping attendees or showcasing your knitr/Sweave usage, please send Meirian (meirian.lovelacetozer (at) gmail.com) a quick email explaining what you would like to present. There is no need to prepare anything formal, having a running example is more than enough (even if it is not your own creation).
Don’t feel like presenting anything? Don’t worry, just come along and immerse yourself in the knowledge that your peers have to share while enjoying some light snacks and beverages together.
Please bring with you: a laptop with internet access and a web browser, and a laptop charger.
Please contact Meirian (meirian.lovelacetozer (at) gmail.com) if you have any questions, or if you would like to volunteer as a leader or presenter for R and/or LaTeX events!
