RMarkdown is a powerful tool for producing documents with embedded R code, allowing you to easily reproduce analysis and greatly simplify your data-driven workflow. It can be used to generate dynamic reports, presentations, journal papers, and even your thesis!

The presentation was designed to provide a whistle-stop tour of the benefits of RMarkdown, explaining the basic syntax to get started and highlighting some of the more advance things which you could use RMarkdown for.

The presentation introduced the package sotonthesis, which is a template designed to create documents within RMarkdown in line with the University of Southampton Thesis template.

While the template is designed to minimise edits made by the user, it is recommended that you read the bookdown and have a strong understanding of RMarkdown.
