R+knitr+LaTeX workshop: (tentatively) Saturday post-talks

Lab notebooks with LaTeX, R and knitr, led by Boris Veytsman. Zip archive of workshop files.

The work of a research scientist involves keeping daily notebooks. Such a working notebook is a document with text, equations, calculations, figures, tables, code snippets which reflects the current state of the lab research. This workshop teaches how to maintain such notebooks in a TeX/R environment.

Prerequisites. Please install the following on your computer:

After you have installed R, you can install knitr, tikzDevice and Hmisc using the R packaging system.

There is no fee for this workshop, but please let us know you're planning to attend it in the comments field on the conference registration form, or email us.
