Understanding PCA using Stack Overflow data

May 17, 2018

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

This year, I have given some talks about understanding principal component analysis using what I spend day in and day out with, Stack Overflow data. You can see a recording of one of these talks from rstudio::conf 2018. When I have given these talks, I’ve focused a lot on understanding PCA. This blog post walks through how I implemented PCA and how I made the plots I used in my talk.
