Ggplot2 is one of R’s most popular, widely used packages, developed by Rice University’s Hadley Wickham. Ggplot2’s exploratory graphics capabilities are driving the use of R as a complement to legacy analytics tools such as SAS. SAS is well-regarded for its strength in data management and "production" statistics, where you know what you want to do and need to do it repeatedly. On the other hand, R is strong in data analysis and exploration in situations where figuring out what is needed is the biggest challenge. In this important way, SAS and R are strong companions.
This webinar will provide an all-access pass to Hadley’s latest work. He’ll discuss:
* A brief overview of ggplot2, and how it's different to other plotting systems
* A sneak peek at some of the new features coming to the next version of ggplot2
* What’s been learned about good development practices in the 5 years since first starting to develop ggplot
* Some of the internals of ggplot2, and talk about how he is gradually making it easier for others to contribute.
