I recently got back from Strata West 2017 (where I ran a very well received workshop on
Spark). One thing that really stood out for me at the exhibition hall was
datashaderfrom Continuum Analytics.
I had the privilege of having Peter Wang himself demonstrate
datashaderfor me and answer a few of my questions.
I am so excited about
datashadercapabilities I literally will not wait for the functionality to be exposed in
rbokeh. I am going to leave my usual
rmarkdownworld and dust off
Jupyter Notebookjust to use
datashaderplotting. This is worth trying, even for diehard
For the moment, it looks like datashader is only available for Python, but it’s coming to R.
