We're happy to announce this year's first meetup of the Munich useR Group!
We have two interesting talks scheduled and a very nice location at the headquarters of Stylight GmbH.
We're looking forward to seeing you on the 23rd!
Janko Thyson, KU Eichstätt-Ingolstadt: An Introduction to Analytical Web Scraping with R
An introduction to how information presented on publicly available websites can be automatically retrieved and systematically processed with R in order to gain insights that provide an additional value for certain analytical company tasks such as market monitoring.
Sergii Khomenko, Stylight GmbH: The story of your data by R
Usually we use R to build and evaluate variety of models. From another side R also could be a very flexible and powerful data visualization tool. In this talk I will give a short overview of available ways to visualize geo-based data, how to process your data stored MySQL in Windows environment, and other small tips and tricks for improving performance of such data visualization problems.
Stylight will be sponsoring the event with location, drinks & snacks.
