BBC News are using the R ggplot2 package to create production-ready charts—which illustrates the flexibility and power of this package.
What’s particularly interesting is the approach they’ve taken to training their staff to use R. Initiatives include
sharing of tricks and tips through a living cookbook (knowledge base)
a six week course comprising six short introductions with links to online resources
a dedicated Slack channel for course participants to discuss issues or ask for help
an end-of-course project/challenge that exercises the skills developed over the six weeks
The strategies of spreading training over an extended period and embedding it in the workplace have been shown to increase retention and assist in moving from learning to delivering value to the business.
