R Master series I: Yihui Xie--- Things that you may not know about knitr

This talk introduces some less well-known features of knitr after a quick introduction.

It is a google hangout talk. Attendants will gather together and have enough time to ask Yihui questions.

Agenda:

• 7:00-8:30pm Presentation

• 8:30-9:00pm Q & A

Content:

• a brief introduction of knitr with R Markdown and LaTeX examples

• basic knitr document syntax and options

• spin() for the impatient

• some R Markdown applications: RPubs, R Presentations

    Question for Yihui: Were the slides done with Slidfy or something else?

    September 11, 2013

    • Yihui X.

      No, with RStudio (as I mentioned in the slides, this new feature "R Presentation" is coming in RStudio 0.98, and you can find it in the preview version).

    Really interesting package, might need to tinker with it a little bit more though.

      And by that I mean "I need to tinker with it a little bit more."

    • Shangxuan Vivian Z.

      As a group, we will gather together to hear the talk. Due to the complexity of multiperson hangout, we don't offer public google hangout.

      September 10, 2013

    • Shangxuan Vivian Z.

      @Hilary Parker, sorry, we can't.
