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