Unfortunately, no big surprise this year. Or maybe this is good news as it means that I have all the important stuff in my RSS Reader. And by the way, this blog is now listed on www.r-bloggers.com.

To be fair there was a couple of interesting talks (reaching my attention before the slides were published), namely

Paul Marrel: Vector Image Processing

Paul is converting static PDF image into dynamic SVG graphics. This is not so much about R but it is really cool.

Markus Gesmann: Using the Google Visualisation API with R

Easy way how to put dynamic images on your web page. Particularly useful, if you work with GPS tracking data. Verified 🙂

Susan Ranney: It’s a Boy! An Analysis of Tens of Millions of Birth Records Using R

RevoScaleR functionality demonstrated on 3.1GB dataset of birth records.

Ulrike Grömping: Design of Experiments in R

This is a bit personal. I have very little (read “no”) experience with designing experiments (DoE). Back in 2008 I met my wife’s supervisor that was an author of an old commercial DoE software. We both realized that R missed a lot of DoE methods. The problem was my lack of theoretical knowledge in this area and his style of work. I gave up but I am happy that they finally finished the job without me – the book was published and the package is available on CRAN. Looking into DoE CRAN Task View – we were not alone.
