Event description

Description

The second of our DWP Digital ‘tech talks’ demonstrating how we’re tackling some of the UK’s biggest digital challenges.

Join us to see some examples of data visualisation which enable evidence-based decision making in the development and improvement of digital services in the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).

Data Scientists Penny Pegman and Paul Ainsworth will demonstrate how they have used R Studio (open source data analysis software) to communicate insights from data for agile project development teams.

The session will cover:

  • A demo showing how they use the 'rmarkdown' package to create html web page reports with customised features.
  • Another demo showing how they use the 'flexdashboard' package to create dashboards to show key summary metrics

They will then share code to enable you to produce your own outputs if you have R Studio installed on your device, with various options that you can experiment with.

For those without R Studio on their device the team will lead an interactive session to show more of the customisable features.
