Description

In this meetup we will show how to create reports automatically with R using rmarkdown and knitr libraries.

These two libreries allow to easily combine results form R with a final report, whether the format is word, pdf, html, presentation, etc. Working with rmarkdown and knitr simplifies the process of creating a report.

It avoids copying and pasting R outputs to another document, minimizing errors. If the initial data varies because there're missing records or there're not correct, there is no need to do the report or graphs again, only adapt conclusions in the case they change.

Speakers:

Carlos Bort will introduce knitr library and Lluís Ramon will talk about basic rmarkdwon functionalities to create pdf or word files, and also how to generate templates to simplify usual reports.
