• Fail fast -- lessons learned from my first visualization challenge
I spent my last five years doing exploratory analysis -- creating quite a lot meaningful, but terribly-looking visualizations. However, the offered data set of the satRday data visualization challenge seemed so interesting that I decided to create my own visualization to see how a complete data workflow looks like. In my talk, I will briefly summarize my approach and what mistakes I made while preparing my submission (there are a lot) and what was my conclusion after it ("Oh my, this is more difficult than I thought.").

Ágnes Salánki isa Data Analyst at Secret Sauce Partners, former PhD student at the Budapest University of Technology. Big fan of visualization and R (especially visualization in R).

• Some interesting problems encountered while using Stackoverflow

I learned about shiny a few months ago. After going through the tutorials I decided to read and answer questions on Stackoverflow to get some practice. In this talk I will present some problems and solutions I found interesting and instructive.
