The Grammar and Graphics of Data Science

Live! Wednesday, July 30th at 11am Eastern Time US

Data science is the process of turning data into understanding and actionable insight. Two key data science tools are data manipulation and visualization. Learn how you can easily munge data with dplyr (even if it's still in a database), and create interactive visualizations with ggvis.

    • ggvis: Interactive graphics in R - Winston Chang

The statistical programming language R is fast becoming the preferred environment for data analysis worldwide in science, industry, and education.

RStudio provides the premiere open source and enterprise-ready professional software for data scientists moving to R from less flexible, proprietary, and expensive analytic platforms. Shiny, ggvis, dplyr, knitr, R Markdown, and packrat are recent R packages from RStudio that every data scientist will want to enhance the value, reproducibility, and appearance of their work.

The Essential Tools for Data Science with R webinar series is the perfect place to learn more about the power of these R packages from the authors themselves.

Webinar Series: Essential Tools for Data Science with R

Reproducible Reporting

Live! Wednesday, August 13th at 11am Eastern Time US

It doesn't matter how great your analysis is unless you can share it with others - easily. R Markdown and knitr make it easy to intermingle code and text to generate compelling reports and presentations that are never out of date. Combine R Markdown with packrat to ensure that your reports are reproducible day in and day out, no matter what other R packages you have installed.

Interactive Reporting

Live! Wednesday, September 3rd at 11am Eastern Time US

In a static report, you answer known questions. With a dynamic report, you give the reader the tools to answer their own questions. Get started by learning how to make your R Markdown documents interactive, and then unleash the full flexibility of analytic app development with shiny.
