Slides with Rmarkdown: Xaringan

Part of the DataFest Workshop Series. R markdown is a means of applying structure to the prose in your coding document.  Using R Markdown and the xaringan package, attendees will integrate code with natural language (i.e. prose) to render presentation slides as a reproducible report.  The method of integrating code with prose is known as literate coding.  Attendees will focus their energies on rendering slides as one type of report while being introduced to an array of report types that can be generated from the same code.


  • Introductory familiarity with R and the Tidyverse (e.g. quickStart with R, part 1)
  • A Twitter account
  • Install R and RStudio on your computer
  • tidyverese and xaringan packages installed in your R environment

install.packages(c("tidyverse", "xaringan"))
