Hey Everyone,

Data Visualization: The Split, Apply and Combine Way

This week we are going to take on one of the most talked about subjects of late, data visualization.

What underpins the most common visualizations? What makes some of them easier to understand? Is there a repeatable strategy to create clear and effective visualizations every time?

We will walk through the Split-Apply-Combine approach to data analysis. After this introduction, we will dive into an easy to digest introduction to some of the concepts from the Grammar of Graphics, then we will explore methods and techniques to create effective visualizations reliably.
