Lightning talks [EN]

  • Apr 23, 2014 · 6:00 PM
  • BME I. épület, I.B 019. terem

Another session with  lightning talks: speakers have 5 minutes to present 15 slides -- each shown for 20 seconds. This presentation technique is regularly used at useR! conferences and guarantees a brief and rather fun introduction to a variety of topics dealing with R:

• Bence Arató - R in enterprises

• László Gönczy - Exploratory data analysis: project experience and ongoing developments

• Gergely Horváth - R workshop in Bucharest

• Imre Kocsis - Bigvis: plotting (relatively) large data in R

• András Tajti: Changing User Roles in an Online Forum

• Dénes Tóth - Dilemmas in package development: interactive visualization, GUIs, largish data, extensibility

• Gergely Daróczi - Transforming R objects to Pandoc’s markdown

Please note that this is an English speaking event. De legközelebb várhatóan újra magyar nyelvű találkozót szervezünk.

    Guys, did anyone take a photo at the event? I was so busy pressing the PgDn button in every 20 seconds, that I forgot to make a few pics. Anyway, thank you all for coming, also thanks a thousand times to the presenters so that they volunteered to give a talk in English, I really enjoyed all, and see you soon in a month!

    A note to all those did not attend to the event: 3 out of the 5 presenters ended up with the highest number of votes (drawn), and the other 2 guys got also the same number of votes (drawn). The difference between the votes for the 1st and second finishers was 2. Now guess how many votes did I get? :)

      FYI there's an option in Adobe Reader: Full Screen Navigation / Advance every x seconds :)

    I wish my institute adopted this format for more of their meetings.
