It has been long time since we have done a ggplot talk so Luda will discuss packages that extend ggplot's functionality.|
Thank you to AT&T Labs for hosting us.
About the Talk:
This talk will cover using ggplot & other ggplot-friendly packages in order to make impressive data visualizations with R. We will look at how several well-liked Tidy Tuesday submissions were generated & use a few packages that allow for different types of visualizations while also discussing ways to make even a simple bar chart more compelling.
