There is a course coming up on Hadley Wickham's popular ggplot visualization package in R, in Redwood city. It is taught by the ggplot developers themselves. I am helping promoting the event.

This was an outstanding presentation - very thoughtful, and very useful. Got me thinking about some good things. Audience was attentive and polite, because the speaker - Kiwi accent and all - carried the day. It made me want follow-up. The venue was too hot and crowded, but that's just an observation not a complaint. My hat is off to the organizers and the speaker.

Really great speaker, and well organized talk.
Stating rules and what tools people should use along with random opinions without any solid examples to back such rules is an ineffective way to educate, inspire and enrich peoples knowledge. Should have used a case study for how you used R and other tools in a challenging project to show the process, methodologies and final outcome while sharing examples along the way.
Learned a lot of new tools to try out- found it to be quite informative.
Can you put up the slides from the lecture?
The talk was awesome! Great attendance even at the eve of 4th of July!Could we possibly get the slides from Dr. Wickham? Thanks a lot for organizing the event!Happy holidays, you all!
