Turn messy R scripts intocleaninteractivereproducibleonlinereports
An interactive mini course helping R developers be So. Much. More. efficient at data analysis.
The struggle is real
For the 10th time you open your script called
You're ready for a last run, creating a few graphs that you will have to copy paste to your report, together with some crucial statistical test results.
Did you really write this? It is barely readable. There are no comments. Some lines are so long you can't see their ends. It basically looks like a labyrinth of duplication, making even the smallest changes an agonizing ordeal.
But wait 🤔. Where is the awesome piece of code you wrote the other day? Perhaps in another version of the script...
Nevermind, let's email those results to the team, it is not too bad already. At least you did not lose your script like last time.
You run the analysis on
data_clean.csv instead of
data_final.csv. Results are all wrong! 🙈
There is an easier way!
I remember those good old days so well.
But some tools can make your life 100x easier 🎉
Quarto transforms your code in a stunning report.
HTML widgets integrate interactive charts in it.
Git tracks all your changes.
Github hosts your work and transforms it in a website for free.
In this mini course, I provide you with an efficient pipeline for your daily data analysis work with R. An elixir of the best tools, tips and tricks.
I promise there won't be any coming back.

R is a fantastic but permissive language; it's hard not to make errors in reproducibility. What I loved about Yan's talk is his way of simply presenting the best R practices that can be game-changing for your statistical work
even if you are a beginner!
