We're back from the fantastic useR! conference and ready for our August event! This month we are excited to present:
Getting down and up with blogging in R!
Making a website is a great way to showcase your thoughts, talents, and profile to a wider audience. Blogging helps to articulate your thoughts and accelerate your understanding by writing what you learned. However, sharing R code and analysis on a blog can be tedious and cumbersome. But the R package blogdown by Yihui Xie makes the workflow easy and you can enjoy writing instead!
In this workshop, presented by Emi Tanaka, you will learn how to use blogdown to make your own blog or general purpose website. With time permitting, Emi will also show some advanced tricks to bling up your website and share some tips for getting more exposure for your website.
Emi is a lecturer in statistics at the University of Sydney who enjoys working in a collaborative environment with people from diverse backgrounds with an aim to understand real data. Her main research interest lies in the development of useful tools for practitioners and statistical modeling with application to agriculture. Her blogdown website https://emitanaka.github.io/ is featured as one of the impressive blogdown website in Xie et al (2018) R Markdown: The Definitive Guide.
This month we are also thrilled to announce our new sponsor, Nous Group. Nous is hosting our seminar this month, at Level 19, 567 Collins Street. As always, pizza and drinks will be provided!
Please come any time from 5:30pm. The workshop will commence at 6pm and finish by 7:30pm.
Looking forward to seeing everyone there!
