We are very pleased to have our first joint SPDC/Data Visualization DC event. Dr. Ramnath Vaidyanathan is the primary developer of two influential R packages that help with presenting and displaying our analyses:

• Slidify (http://www.slidify.org), which allows the creation of HTML5-based presentations using Markdown and R

• rCharts (http://ramnathv.github.io/rCharts/), which allows the creation of dynamic graphical content using a variety of Javascript graphing libraries like d3.js, Highcharts, Leaflet, Rickshaw and others, directly from R using the familiar R syntax conventions

Dr. Vaidyanathan has also developed rNotebook (http://ramnathv.github.io/rNotebook/), an enhanced version of the KnitR Notebook, which allows you to see your Rmarkdown document and the formatted HTML instantaneously side-by-side.

Important RSVP note: If RSVPs are filled here, please RSVP through DVDC since this is a joint event. Check out this Meetup with Data Visualization DC http://meetu.ps/1XrcGl
