Authoring scientific documents with Markdown and Quarto

December 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm


This in-person workshop will show you how to easily create beautiful scientific documents (html, pdf, websites, books…)—complete with formatted text, dynamic code, and figures. We will first cover the simple and ubiquitous markdown syntax, then introduce you to Quarto (https://quarto.org/), an open-source tool combining the powers of Jupyter and Pandoc to turn your text and code blocks into fully dynamic and formatted documents.

Prerequisites: None

Location: Walter C. Koerner Library, Research Commons’ Presentation Room (548/552)

To participate in this workshop, you will need a text editor (e.g. Emacs, Vim, Sublime, Visual Studio Code, Nano), quarto (install from: https://quarto.org/docs/get-started/), Python (install from: https://www.python.org/downloads/), and Jupyter (see installation instructions at: https://quarto.org/docs/computations/python.html#installation).
