Quarto is the next generation of RMarkdown, and comes with a new presentation format, revealjs. In this talk, I’ll show a few of my favorite things about making interactive HTML presentations with Quarto. Along the way you’ll learn about the visual editor, multiple columns, delivering an effective talk with speaker notes and mode, making your presentations pop with transitions, effective ways to incorporate code into your presentation, beautiful themes (and how to match your corporate style guide), and sharing it as pdf and HTML. I’ll finish off with a brief look at generating a powerpoint presentation from a template.
Tracy Teal has been working with open source communities as a developer, instructor and project leader throughout her career. As a PhD student at Caltech and then as an Assistant Professor in bioinformatics at Michigan State University, she saw that the bottleneck to discovery was no longer data production, but the skills and perspective to work with data. She went on to co-found Data Carpentry to scale data training along with data production and then became Executive Director of The Carpentries, continuing to develop open curriculum and an inclusive instructor community. She is currently the Open Source Program Director at Posit where she is passionate about supporting open source developers and expanding access to tools that help people use data to answer the questions that are important to them.
