• My talk went well; here are the slides and a link to the paper pre-print.
• Hadley Wickham gave an excellent tutorial on dplyr.
• Based on the talk I saw, I think I will take the data sets from the book and make some public visualizations on the Plotly website.
• There were a few presentations on interactive graphics that were very good (here, here and here).
• Tal Galili gave an excellent talk on visualizing and analyzing hierarchical clustering algorithms. (slides)
• Revolution Analytics and RStudio proposed two similar techniques for preserving versions for better reproducibility.
• The subsemble package by Erin LeDell was impressive.
• I had dinner with John Chambers, which was pretty cool too.
