Take a Sad Plot & Make It Better

Take a Sad Plot & Make It Better


How I took one sad plot and made it better, and what I learned from it.

Nous House, Melbourne, Australia

In this talk, Alison will talk about one plot’s life cycle, from a sad Powerpoint slide to an Excel chart and finally to the finished product made with the ggplot2 package in R. Along the way, she will discuss why each version of the plot fails in different ways and how each iteration improved on the last one.
