13.11 Summary

The combination of R, RStudio, and Markdown is a powerful triumvirate which produce beautiful results quickly and be greatly labour saving. We use this combination for all academic work, but also in the production of real-time reports as webpages and downloadable PDFs for on-going projects. This is a fast-moving area with new applications and features appearing every month. We would highly recommend you spend some time getting familiar with this area, as it will become an ever more important skill in the future.
