1.9 Workshop: Software we will use

  • What will we use?
  • R (only viable competitor is Python)2
    • Check out this chapter.
    • We’ll rely on various packages that you install with the code below
  • Ggplot23
    • Base R vs. Ggplot2 (e.g., 1 and 2, 3, 4)
    • I was in the “base R camp” but
      • Weirdly I came to ggplot over plotly (through this project)
      • Now a huge fan of ggplot2: Why? (Q: Latex? or R vs. C++)
  • Plotly4
  • Note: Ideally cite the software you use (especially when it is open-source)
