R Workshop: Introducing Slidify – HTML5 slides from R markdown

Thursday, June 28th, 2012  19h. <–  new evening time!

Tomson House: 650 McTavish, H3A 1Y2, Montréal, QC <– new social setting!

guRu: Ramnath Vaidyanathan (McGill University)

Ramnath Vaidyanathan will introduce the group to slidify, his brand new R package.

From the slidify website:

“The objective of slidify is to make it easy to create reproducible HTML5 presentations from .Rmd files. The guiding philosophy of slidify is to completely separate writing of content from its rendering, so that content can be written once in R Markdown, and rendered as an HTML5 presentation using any of the HTML5 slide frameworks supported.”

The package is currently in alpha and therefore not yet available on cran. You can find install instructions here.

Ramnath Vaidyanathan is Assistant Professor of Operations Management at McGill University’s Desautels Faculty of Management.

This is a meeting of the Montreal R Users Group. We’re open to everyone! Sign up to RSVP!
