Make and host your own blog using R and GitHub

June 11, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm UTC+0

One of the awesome R-Ladies London organizers, Claudia, gave a presentation last month on how to create & host a Blogdown website using R and GitHub.  We are going to re-create Claudia’s workshop in the Bay Area at our next meetup!  Here is the meetup description from the R-Ladies London Blogdown meetup event.   

Have you ever thought of writing a blog? Maybe to tell the world about your R projects? 

Come to our session and bring your laptop, we will explore together some options and you will go back home with a new blog that integrates nicely with R/Rstudio and it’s hosted live on Github. 

We will look at pros and cons of WordPress, Rmarkdown + HUGO and markdown + Jekyll. To experiment with all of them, please create a GitHub account and install the following software on your machine BEFORE the session:

– R 
– RStudio 
– git 
– jekyll (optional, here some instructions)
