MilanoR Staff is happy to announce the 9th MilanoR Meeting!

A MilanoR meeting is an occasion to bring together R users in the Milano area to share knowledge and experiences. The meeting is a free event, open to everybody. The meeting consists of some R talks and a free buffet + networking time.

This time we want to focus on a specific topic: data visualization with R. We’ll try to explore the R dataviz world from any corner, checking tools, ideas and applied case studies.

—— FAQ

Uhm, this MilanoR meeting looks different from the others.. How does it work?

You’re right, this time we decided to focus on a specific topic, and just explore it from several corners. So instead of having two long talks, we moved to many, but shorter.

Ideally, the meeting may be divided in three half an hour blocks: from about 19:00 to 19:30 we will have welcome presentations and a first introduction to the R dataviz world.

From about 19:30 to 20:00 Andrea Cirillo will introduce the package paletteR, going deeper into a new tool for dataviz (and showing how everyone can extend the R capabilities in every field).

From 20:00 to 20:30 we’ll see a roundup of examples that complete our exploration of the R data visualization world: from modeling to interactive dashboard, we’ll see how R is used in the “real” world.

Then, as always, free food and chat <3
