From R Markdown to Quarto
Dates: July 25-26, 2022
Time: 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM Eastern each day
Location: Online and in Washington, DC
BIDS Faculty Affiliate Andrew Bray will present this workshop as part of rstudio::conf 2022, which is being held in Washington, DC, on July 25-28, 2022. The workshop is designed for those who want to take their R Markdown skills and expertise and apply them in Quarto, the next generation of R Markdown. Quarto is an open-source scientific and technical publishing system that offers multilingual programming language support to create dynamic and static documents, books, presentations, blogs, and other online resources. In this workshop, participants will learn how to apply reproducible authoring skills to the Quarto format and learn about new tools and workflows for authoring with Quarto in RStudio. Participants will also learn to create static documents, add interactivity to them with Shiny and htmlwidgets, and create presentations in various formats such as reveal.js, beamer, and pptx. The workshop will also introduce other Quarto projects which can be used to build websites and write blogs and books. Finally, participants will learn various ways to deploy and publish Quarto projects on the web. Independent modules will also highlight authoring in Quarto with Jupyter and VS Code, as well as other text editors.
