MilanoR Staff is happy to announce the 9th MilanoR Meeting! The meeting will take place on November 20th, from 7pm to about 9:30 pm, in Mikamai (close to the Pasteur metro station) [save the date, more info soon]. This time we want to focus on a specific topic: data visualization with R. Do you feel you have something to input? Send us your contribution, even in term of a short video if you cannot attend the meeting.
On June 29th we had the great pleasure to host the RStudio in Milano at Impact Hub. It went absolutely well with great participation, thank you all!
This post is just to give the materials to those of you who could not make it or just want to go through it again and again!
Great painters can teach us a lot about how to compose a good palet for our plot. That is why we look here at a way to algorithmically derive a colour palette from any jpeg image. Application of derived palettes on ggplot is also showed.
Hello R-Users, we have a great news! We are going to host Nathan Stephens and Joseph Rickert from RStudio and R Consortium: they are coming to Milano just for us (from USA) to meet the MilanoR community and talk about the latest news from RStudio and R Consortium
We are ready for the third R-Lab, the monthly appointment where we co-work together on a real data science problem using R. This time the R-Lab is promoted by nothing but the Assessorato alla Partecipazione, Cittadinanza Attiva e Open Data of the Comune di Milano! We will access their municipality budget data, and use one day of joint work for designing and realizing an R Shiny app that allows citizens to visualize and explore the city revenues and spending info.
In R-Lab#2 we realized a Shinyapp that shows the earthquakes evolution over the Bove-Vettore fault. Here report, code, slides and app!
Hello R-users <3
The 8th MilanoR Meeting was great! Thank you very much for your interest and participation!
A short recap for those who weren't there: the meeting was last Wednesday evening at the Microsoft House (a very nice location, thanks @dr_mattia for your support!).
We had two exceptional speakers: Stefano Iacus, member of the R Foundation and funder of Voices from the blogs, and Romain François, historical author of the package Rcpp and data active at Thinkr, who came all the way from Paris for us.
The R-Labs are monthly evening meetings where we co-work together on a real data science problem, hands on code. We are ready for the R-Lab#2, on April 11th!
With the help of EarthCloud, we will try to map the earthquakes that happened over a specific fault, to study the fault evolution over time and provide qualitative and quantitative insights about it. To achieve this goal, we will review and use Shiny, the R framework for interactive visualization, and R packeges for maps as ggmap and Leaflet
MilanoR is a free event, open to all R users and enthusiasts or those who wish to learn more about R. The meeting consists of two talks (this time one about big data and and one about statistical learning) + a free buffet and networking time
Great news for the MilanoR community: we are launching R-Lab, a monthly R project of co-working with R on real data science projects.
Either if you are an R expert, a beginner, or you just curious, you are welcome to join us! The first event will be on March 14th, in Mikamai, Milano. We will introduce the R-Lab project and then go to the theme of the day: "RStudio addins: a shortcut to your favourite functionalities"
