Speaker: Chester Ismay (https://github.com/ismayc) - Instructional Technologist/Statistical Consultant at Reed College

Abstract: One of the great recent additions from RStudio is the ability to create templates in R Markdown that allows R users to customize output to a variety of document formats while only needing to write in Markdown. You can create templates for outputting Word documents, HTML documents, and PDF documents all including R code and its output. I’ll discuss how to go about creating templates, demonstrate an R Markdown senior thesis template I created for Reed College seniors that interfaces with the traditional LaTeX thesis template, and hopefully provide you with an opportunity to write a template of your own during this meeting.
