Blogging with rmarkdown, knitr, and Jekyll
Head of Data Science @ Satmetrix
If you want to give back, I think writing a blog is a great way. Many of the things that you struggle with will be common problems. Think about how to solve them well and describe your solution to others.

(and some dodgy wrapper functions I wrote)
alias push_blog='aws s3 sync /home/br/projects/brendanrocks.com/_site \ s3://brendanrocks.com --exclude "cache/*|README.md" --delete'
Is easy withe the awscli
1. Install R dependencies
install.packages(c("knitr", "servr", "devtools")) devtools::install_github("hadley/lubridate") devtools::install_github("brendan-r/brocks")
4. Open up knitr-jekyll/knitr-jekyll.Rproj, and get blogging!
library(brocks) new_post("My first blog post!")
