SSA is pleased to offer two pre-conference workshops leading up to our Young Statisticians Conference, YSC2019.
This particular workshop will be presented by our international keynote speaker, Alison Hill.
About the workshop
A workshop for R Markdown users who want to get more out of R Markdown (and friends). In this workshop, we will demystify how R Markdown works under the hood. You will learn practical tools and workflows to increase your efficiency and productivity using R Markdown (including RStudio IDE features and templates), while learning how to use some extension packages along the way. We assume that you have knit an R Markdown document before, but you don’t need to be an advanced R Markdown user to take this workshop.
