In this workshop, we will use R and RStudio. RStudio is not required but recommended, because it makes it easier for an average user to work with R Markdown. If you do not have RStudio IDE installed, you will have to install Pandoc (http://pandoc.org), otherwise there is no need to install Pandoc separately because RStudio has bundled it.
- A recent version of R (>= 3.5.1 “Feather Spray”) is recommended. You can check your version from the R Console:
##  "R version 3.5.1 (2018-07-02)"
- RStudio (>= 1.1.463) is recommended.
