The three Rs: R, Rmarkdown, and Reproducibility

Perhaps you’ve heard that as an academic you should be working towards a reproducible, transparent workflow. What does that look like? This workshop will walk you through a minimal example of how you might set up a research project using popular tools of R and Rmarkdown files with reproducibility as a goal. Additionally, we’ll have a look at some new resources — “flipbooks” made with “Xaringan” – that walk through data manipulation pipelines and plotting. Time permitting, you’ll compile your own flipbook, which you can modify to communicate about each decision you make in your analysis.
