Slides with Knitr and Slidify

So, for those of you using knitr in the class, you may be feeling pretty good about R Markdown. You may want to even start using it more broadly, say, for making slides with lots of analyses. Previously you had to use LaTeX and Beamer. That’s what I’ve been doing for class. This has been fun, but it’s a whole new cumbersome language to work with. Some folk had figured out how to use pandoc to make slides using markdown. This was OK. But complicated.

Now…there is the new slidify library which puts everything into a nice tidy R + Markdown + Github + Rpub ecosystem. Very hot.
