Live Presentation: My Talk at the CDC

February 27, 2017

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

Last Thursday I had the honor of giving a talk about my open source work to the CDC’s R Users Group. A big thank you to the CDC for having me!

As the creator of a software package that maps open data, it was wonderful to speak at the CDC: not only do they publish interesting data, they also frequently need to map that data!

My presentation was an hour long. This allowed me to cover a lot of the material that appears in my various courses. I also got to discuss several features that I don’t often have a chance to write about.

I thought that other people might enjoy this presentation as well. So this Thursday at 9am PT I will be running the presentation as a live webinar that is open to the public. You can attend by registering below.

Note: if you are interested in watching the talk but unable to attend live, I encourage you to register anyway: I will be sending out a link to the recording afterwards.
