R markdown offers three main types of output: pdf, html and docx. The first session introduces the basic framework, the output-specific possibilities and the bookdown-extension.
The second session explores some general approaches for automation (using self-built templates for report-sections or complete reports) and presents Officedown. The latter is less flexible than Rmarkdown, but offers more options for docx-output.
