R Reading Group Resources

Please note that these resources were primarily intended for the reading group, so that you as a proficient user of LaTeX and/or R might not get that much from them. They might be rooted in discussions we had at our meetings, etc. etc. For that reason, they might to be too specific at times, and too general at other times.

Having said that, I do think that these resources might still come in handy for beginners or intermediate users of R and/or LaTeX.

  • The R Reading Group's Introduction to LaTeX (13 July 2015)  pdf
  • A Short Introduction to the sprintf() Function (22 July 2015)  pdf

Praat Resources

  • GetTimePoints  praat script - This script loops through all Sound and TextGrid files in a directory, outputting the duration of each file and the time stamp of all points in a specified point tier to a tab-delimited text file.

Urbanism, Cities, and Active Transport Resources

In no particular order, here are some books and twitter accounts I enjoyed (or continue to enjoy) with regards to more open streets, active transport, and cities for all ages and abilities - and some other neat city stuff:



I do not necessarily endorse the accounts and people mentioned in this list (apart from Paths for People, of course); I have just found, at some point in the space-time continuum, that they have posted interesting tidbits around urbanism and cities.
