This event is now offered virtually due to Duke's Coronavirus-19 Events policy. Please contact john.little@duke.edu for information about accessing the workshop.   A zoom link will be sent, via email.

Part of the Rfun learning series

Explore the variety of reports that can be generated with R.  Learn to compose dashboards while easily implementing the inherent interactivity of  HTMLWidgets orchestrated through R and RStudio.

Flexible and reproducible reports are easily produced using literate programming techniques.  The R/RStudio/Tidyverse suite enables you to render your analysis into a wide variety of elegant reports.  Simplicity is a key factor.  An R notebook can be repurposed to produce interactive dashboards, slides, e-books, journal articles, PDF documents, MS Word, MS Power Point, Excel, Web Pages, Web Sites, and more.  R Markdown is the key to structuring your final report document.  Code chunks containing R code, within literate programming scripts, enable any R author to reproducibly render multiple report outputs.  These techniques enable you to reach your target audience. 

Come learn how to produce dashboards and slides.  Add interactivity with an artful selection of easily leveraged HTML Widgets.  Along the way you'll learn how you can render your analysis script into an array of different report outputs, pursuant to your audience needs.   


NOTE:  Bring your laptop.
