It’s an episode of firsts on the R-Podcast! In this episode recorded on location I had the honor and privilege of interviewing Yihui Xie, author of many innovative packages such as knitr and animation. Some of the topics we discussed include:

  • Yihui’s motivation for creating knitr and some key new features
  • How markdown plays a key role in making reproducible research more accessible
  • An innovative approach for publishing and maintaining reproducible statistical results online

And much more on this “lucky” episode 13 of the R-Podcast!
