Pour le rencontre R de l'été 2015, on verra les résultats d'un sondage et un paquet sur la recherche reproducible.

For the summer 2015 R meetup, we will see a demos of an R package for reproducible research, and then discuss the results of some surveys.

Looking for a presenter! Please send an email to the organizers if you would like to make a 15-30 minute presentation and/or demonstration of your favorite R package! [masked] [masked] [masked]

Sahir Bhatnagar will tell us about "Reproducible research: An introduction to knitr (http://yihui.name/knitr/). With the ever increasing size of data and complexity of methods required to analyze them, the reproducibility of results is necessary to ensure a high quality of scientific research. I will discuss the main concepts and motivations for reproducible research (RR), then introduce useful tools for RR, including RStudio (http://www.rstudio.com/), knitr (http://yihui.name/knitr/), and Markdown (http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/syntax). I will show how these tools can be used to perform efficiently common tasks such as writing reports, Beamer presentations, running simulations, repetitive function calls that require single or multiple inputs to be changed, and sharing results. Basic knowledge of R and LaTeX is assumed. See https://github.com/sahirbhatnagar/knitr-tutorial for material and details."

Dominic Comtois will discuss a couple of online surveys -- please try to respond to them before the meetup http://www.statconseil.com/limesurvey/ . The first survey has some tricky questions about R functions, and the second survey asks what you would like to hear about in the next montReal R useR gRoup.
