There’s been lots of excitement about the new R Markdown feature introduced as part of knitr 0.5 and RStudio 0.96. People see R Markdown as both a simpler way to do reproducible research and as a great way to publish to the web from R. Jeromy Anglim has a nice write up on getting started with R Markdown and Marcus Gesmann describes how to embed Google Visualizations using his googleVis package.
We are just as excited about R Markdown and think there is lots more that can be done with it. We’ll be talking about this along with Yihui Xie (author of knitr) and Jeff Horner (author of R/Apache and Rook) on Tuesday June 5th in New York:
At the meetup we’ll be showing the latest versions of knitr and RStudio and will be announcing some new R Markdown stuff—if you are in New York we’d love to see you there!
Welcome to rstudio.com/blog! We are excited to announce updates to the RStudio blog and can’t wait to share what’s possible with great data science tools.
In an upcoming webinar on November 17th, Solita will showcase how they successfully combined the strengths of RStudio and Tableau at one of Sweden’s largest government agencies.
