Learn ggvis with RStudio and DataCamp

December 5, 2014

(This article was first published on RStudio Blog, and kindly contributed to R-bloggers)

We’ve teamed up with DataCamp to make a self-paced online course that teaches ggvis, the newest data visualization package by Hadley Wickham and Winston Chang. The ggvis course pairs challenging exercises, interactive feedback, and “to the point” videos to let you learn ggvis in a guided way.

In the course, you will learn how to make and customize graphics with ggvis. You’ll learn the commands and syntax that ggvis uses to build graphics, and you’ll learn the theory that underlies ggvis. ggvis implements the grammar of graphics, a logical method for building graphs that is easy to use and to extend. Finally, since this is ggvis, you’ll learn to make interactive graphics with sliders and other user controls.

The first part of the tutorial is available for free, so you can start learning immediately.
