      R programming: R version control
      10:00 am-12:00 pm
      We've all intuitively used some type of version control in our work such as saving multiple versions of a document. While easy, it can cause file bloat and ultimately become more complicated. This workshop will cover version control using git. After this session, you'll be able to create a git repository, and more. A basic working knowledge of R and R studio would be helpful.

      R programming: R reports
      10:00 am-12:00 pm
      Documenting your analysis in a way that is understandable to a colleague (or yourself 3 months later) can be challenging. One way to make reports more readable, even by people who don't code, is to alternate human readable text with machine readable code. This workshop will cover creating reproducible reports of this type using knitr. A basic working knowledge of R and R studio would be helpful. Please register at: https://go.wisc.edu/1o5o29
