Title: Nerds,Geeks and Reproducible Research
This a talk about data collection, analysis, recording and note taking. People around the world have created various open-source software that can significantly help us with these tasks. Thanks to all those efforts, we can now turn in shiny lab reports, document our hard work, and above all, conduct research that is certainly reproducible. I plan to show you some cool examples along with some use-cases of various tools. My main objective is to trick you so that you will, at least try some of these software. Of course, I will not miss the opportunity to tease other nerds, geeks and, "reproducible" research.
