Music Videos in R

The two examples are at

Generate the slides by running Rscript slides.r. This loads the slides.Rmd template, knits it, converts it to HTML and puts the output in index.html. All of the webby files in this directory allow that file to be a slideshow.

Things to remember to talk about

  • Point out that creating pretty graphs in base R graphics is quite unpleasant; this is why you should ordinarily use ggplot2.
  • If symph.io were a real company, we'd note that we're hiring. But we're not a real company, so we instead note that we're available for hire.
