This is our last seminar of the semester - instead of 'Meet the Speaker', the speaker will be conducting an informal workshop (R workshop), 


although not mandatory, we encourage you to bring your laptop.

All are Welcome to the Seminar and Informal Workshop Session 



Date: November 29, 2013 

Time: 1:30 p.m. 

Room : ASB 10900 (IRMACS Theatre) 


Informal workshop session directly after the talk 


Room: ASB 10900 

Light refreshments at 1:15 p.m. - IRMACS Atrium 

No registration required TITLE: 


Reproducible research, open science, and all that good stuff for people who use R to do stats ABSTRACT: 


There is a huge buzz these days around changing practices in all aspects of data analysis. I will go over some recent exciting developments that are particularly relevant for the statistics 
community, especially for users of R. We'll talk about R Markdown, the knitr package, handy features of the RStudio IDE, and Git(Hub). And how to get all of these things working together! The first 45 minutes will be a somewhat conventional talk, perhaps with some demos, with many opportunities for questions and discussion. Then we will have about an hour for a short hands-on workshop for anyone who can bring a laptop and wants to try these things out! Keep your eyes open for forthcoming instructions about what to install in advance.
