We're pleased to have Yihui Xie as our special guest at the TeX Hour
tomorrow (Thursday 20 May, 7:00 to 8:00pm). Yihui is a major contributor to
R Markdown and the associated TinyTeX.
R is a popular statistics and data analysis programming language. It uses R
Markdown as a single source for many outputs, from HTML and Beamer slides
through to interactive notebooks and LaTeX typeset mathematics. We can
learn a lot from R Markdown.
Note that we start at 7:00pm. The room will be open at 6:30pm as usual, but
Yihui won't be arriving until after 7:00pm. Arrive at 7:00 yourself if you
wish. The UK time now is https://time.is/UK.
