Changing just a tiny little bit in my LaTeX tabular


Why struggle with something not essential?

Two components of a research report (or homework, paper, book, …)

  1. the authoring tool
  2. the computing tool

  2. R

Automate, automate, automate



The Analysis of Data

Why the web?


A Github/Markdown-based Journal?
