Thanks to everyone at the Chicago R User Group for giving me such a warm welcome for my presentation last night. In my talk, I gave an introduction to Revolution R Open, with a focus on how the checkpoint package makes sharing R code in a reproducible way easy:

If you'd like to try out the checkpoint package, it's available on CRAN now. You can also install a newer, more efficient version from GitHub as follows:

library(devtools)
install_github("RevolutionAnalytics/checkpoint")

You can't see my demo in the slides, but I ran this script in RStudio and demonstrated what happens when you adjust the checkpoint date. You can learn more about checkpoint and the Reproducible R Toolkit here.
