Slides of my Talk at the R Users Meetup Geneva

This July I had the chance to speak at the R Users Meetup Geneva. I shared the learnings of my year-long exploration of the tidyverse through blogging. It was such a pleasure to meet and discuss with other R users as passionnate as I am!

I obviously had to make my slides using R. Afer some research, I discovered the revealjs package, which allows to create reveal.js presentations using R Markdown. I made this presentation writing only two lines of code by slide. Check it out!

As always, I try to make my work fully reproductible. Simply run the R Markdown file below into RStudio to reproduce my slides. For more information about revealjs, you can read the chapter 8 of R Markdown: The Ultimate Guide.
