    Should we bring a laptop with R and rcharts installed? Is there anything else we should have setup?

    • Leslie M.

      That should be sufficient. See you there.

    Hi Jim, yes, that's advisable to bring a laptop with R and rCharts installed, if you would like to follow the presentation. However, it's not mandatory, because all the examples will be run during the Meetup. To see what else you might need for this Meetup, check out the top of this post: http://rpubs.com/conniez/datavis. The post will be updated with new materials before the Meetup tonight :)
