Workshop Overview: As part of the data science life cycle series, this workshop will introduce you to the intuitive Quarto language in RStudio, and show you how to weave together your R code, output and graphs with text to produce documents and slides.

At the end of this workshop, you will be able to
   - create Quarto documents
   - create Quarto slides
   - adapt the layout of the above using Quarto language
