Plot Twist: 10 Bake Offs, Visualized 11 Ways

Plot Twist: 10 Bake Offs, Visualized 11 Ways


Making it tidy isn’t the end of your data’s story…

Nous Group, Sydney, Australia

Using data from 10 series of The Great British Bake Off, we will walk through eleven ways to visualize the same data using the ggplot2 package. We’ll talk a lot about geoms and variable mappings, but also about what it means to “tidy your data”, plus the new pivot functions in the tidyr package.

You won’t need your laptops but you will get the most out of this talk if you know some basics about using ggplot2. To brush up (or start learning now), you may want to play with the free data visualization primer (you may use an existing Google or GitHub account to log in). Or of course you can check out R-Ladies Sydney’s own VizW(h)iz Module of #RYouWithMe!
