On 21 April, 2020, University of Otago postdoctoral researcher and training fellow Murray Cadzow collaborated with NeSI to deliver a training webinar on RMarkdown. He summarised the benefits of using a tool like RMarkdown to generate computationally reproducible analyses and demonstrated some RMarkdown features researchers may want to investigate if they are interested in increasing the sustainability of their work. Specifically, this webinar covered: 

  • The levels of reproducibility,
  • The structure of an Rmarkdown document,
  • How to use RMarkdown with other languages, and
  • what RMarkdown driven development can look like for researchers
